Tate Shots: Karen Elson, Laura Bailey and Daisy Lowe, art of the muses…

Ophelia 1851-2 by Sir John Everett Millais, Bt 1829-1896

Karen Elson compares her own experience of modelling with that of Pre-Raphaelite muse Elizabeth Siddal, Millais’s long-suffering model for ‘Ophelia’.



Here model Laura Bailey goes head to head with Rossetti’s famous femme fatale ‘Lady Lillith’, and discusses the endurance of Pre-Raphaelite symbols in contemporary fashion photography.



Model Daisy Lowe explores the role of Christina Rossetti as a Pre-Raphaelite muse and also as a creative force in her own right.
