About This Design
Rossetti "Love" Victorian Art Card
Card: "Love" (Christina Rossetti), vintage art and historical poetry with a modern twist. A mediaeval couple share their love and joy in this lovely Victorian illustration of 1846 by Daniel Maclise and F. P. Becker. The original black-and-white engraving is long out of copyright and in the public domain, and I've remixed it with a modern twist by digitally hand-colouring it (the painting took about 8 hours). To complement the enchanting imagery, I've incorporated the beautiful 1857 poem A Birthday by Christina Rossetti: "My heart is like a singing bird / Whose nest is in a watered shoot;
 / My heart is like an apple-tree
 / Whose boughs are bent with thick-set fruit;
 / My heart is like a rainbow shell / That paddles in a halcyon sea; / 
My heart is gladder than all these
 / Because my love is come to me.

 / Raise me a dais of silk and down;
 / Hang it with vair and purple dyes;
 / Carve it in doves and pomegranates,
 / And peacocks with a hundred eyes;
 / Work it in gold and silver grapes, / In leaves and silver fleurs-de-lys; / 
Because the birthday of my life / Is come, my love is come to me." This pretty card is perfect for the 21st-century lover of 19th-century art and poetry, on any occasion. Blank inside. Choose your size -- greeting card (5 x 7) or note card (4 x 5.6) -- above.
