Simeon Solomon
Birth: Oct. 9, 1840
Greater London, England
Death: Aug. 14, 1905
Greater London, England

Visonary painter who was the only Jewish member of the Rossetti's Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Met Rossetti in 1860, then met Burne-Jones and finally fell under the influence of Swinburne, whose exotic tastes he shared and with whom he had an intense emotional relationship. Apart from his notable paintings and drawings he also wrote the prose-poem 'A Vision of Love in Sleep'. A twenty-year alcoholic decline saw him reduced to becoming a pavement-artist, and led to his eventual death in a work-house at St. Giles, Holborn. Even his gravestone is now crumbling. (bio by: David Conway)
