William Holman Hunt

       William Holman Hunt was born on April 2, 1827. Hunt’s intended middle name was “Hobman,” which he disliked intensely. He chose to call himself Holman when he discovered that his middle name had been misspelled this way after a clerical error at his wedding at the church of Saint Mary the Virgin, Ewell. Though his surname is “Hunt” his fame in later life led to the inclusion of his middle name as part of his surname, in the hyphenated form “Holman-Hunt,” by which his children were known.

Dante Gabriel Rossetti

       The son of émigré Italian scholar Gabriele Rossetti, D. G. Rossetti was born on May 12, 1828 in London, England and originally named Gabriel Charles Dante Rossetti. His family and friends called him “Gabriel”, but in publications he put the name Dante first, because of its literary associations. He was the brother of poet Christina Rossetti and the critic William Michael Rossetti and a founder of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood with John Everett Millais and William Holman Hunt. At a very early age, he showed a strong interest in literature. Like all his siblings, he aspired to be a poet. However, he also wished to be a painter, having shown a great interest in Medieval Italian art. He studied under Ford Madox Brown, with whom he was to retain a close relationship throughout his life.
