Title: Aurelia (Fazio’s Mistress), 1863 Author: Dante Gabriel Rossetti Museum: Tate, London ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Dante Gabriel Rossetti, a British-Italian painter, poet, and translator, made this c. 1863 portrait of a woman, held by the Tate, he could only imagine, taking his subject from the 14th-century Italian poet Fazio. In a poem, Fazio described his mistress’s “clear brows” and “white easy neck.” Rossetti used his own lover, Fanny Cornforth, as a model. Their affair lasted until Rossetti’s death in 1882; she was the subject of over 60 works. Rossetti is known for his role in co-founding the nostalgic Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, influenced by medieval art. Their goal was to be “direct and serious and heartfelt.” #GucciBeauty — @kchayka ©Tate, London 2018

Title: Portraits of two women, 1950 Author: Lois Mailou Jones Private Collection ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Nearly every moment of Lois Mailou Jones’s life was captured and shared through her paintings. Her style traversed the aesthetic landscape, first mimicking the work of the post-Impressionists and then drawing from the rich colors and symbols of Africa and Haiti, where she often traveled. In her portraits, Jones was known for her ability to capture the rich complexities of black skin tones, rendering her subjects (often her friends or students from Howard University, where she taught) as near three-dimensional figures. Styled in feminine blouses with red lips and curled hair, Jones manages to capture each woman’s beauty in this 1950 painting’s tight headshots. Jones suggests a familiarity and bond between the two only found through family or friendship. #GucciBeauty — @britticisms Lois Mailou Jones Pierre-Noel Trust
