Set in Victorian London, and based on a true story, "Muse" embraces the tumultuous romance between charismatic Pre-Raphaelite painter, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and his muse and model, Elizabeth Siddal. During the rise of the Pre-Raphaelite revolution, which radically changed London's art scene, Dante's paintings became highly commissioned and Lizzie quickly rose to fame, immortalized as a model. Told through Rossetti's story, we follow him through the trials and tribulations of his artistic struggles, as well as the dynamics of his relationship with Lizzie who, as his protege, becomes his artistic competitor.
Dante Gabriel Rossetti
Male, 30s. Caucasian. Italian looking -- All around Renaissance man and ladies man. Rossetti is the charming and charismatic leader of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. He is a fearless, passionate, and a highly ego-driven painter and poet with a fierce hunger for transforming London's 19th century art scene. Must have strong stage presence.
