Excerpt from Pictures, Drawings, Designs and Studies by the Late Dante Gabriel Rossetti: 1883 From the age of eighteen Rossetti attended for some time the school at the Royal Academy. He painted at this time, 1847, the interesting portrait of his father here exhibited (n O. His first Oil Picture. He did not, however, find congenial the teaching then given in the schools, and abandoned them for the studio Of Ford Madox Brown, his senior by some seven years, who had received his artistic training abroad. Towards this artist the young Rossetti was especially attracted by the fine dramatic qualities shown in the Cartoons which the former had recently exhibited for the proposed decorations Of the Houses of Parliament at Westminster. But Rossetti's mind and temperament were too original to admit Of his following in the footsteps Of any master, and he soon attracted round himself a band of young and ardent comrades, with whom he formed, partly in earnest protest against the conventions and commonplace Of the art then prevalent, but partly also in the spirit Of humorous defiance characteristic Of youth, the celebrated pre-raphaelite Brotherhood.
