Scholarly Commentary


Swinburne co-authored these “Notes” with WMR, who did “Part I” of the two-part essay on the exhibition. Swinburne's part is notable for its concluding seven pages (45-51), where he discusses the paintings of his friend DGR, and in particular the works Sibylla Palmifera, Lady Lilith, and Venus Verticordia. The essay is the first appearance in print of the sonnets for these pictures.
