Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Bocca Baciata.
‘Bocca Baciata’ is a quotation from the 14-th century Italian poet and writer Giovanni Boccacio, which Rossetti inscribed on the back of the painting; in full it reads: “The mouth that has been kissed loses not its freshness; still it renews itself even as does  the moon.’ The model was Fanny Cornforth, born Sarah Cox in 1824
