'Proud Maisie' and 'Love's Shadow' - Frederick Sandys

I’m not sure if Frederick  Sandys has a biting fetish or what but I do know that it is quite a popular pose with his work. I mean I am aware that these are basically just two editions of the same concept but I do adore them.  What I love about the Pre-Raphaelites is that their muses are so distinct. I mean you look at a Rossetti and you know its his just from how the girl is painted. This is the same for Millais, Waterhouse, and especially Burne-Jones.  The Pre-Raphaelites were always all about the muse which I have to admit brings out the romantic in me. I don’t think that it is wholly limited to my own notions. I think that the romantic side of the Pre-Raphaelites is what draws me in but it is the intense meaning behind their works that keeps me involved.
