‘Pandora’ by Dante Gabriel Rossetti

We’ve got a beautiful new book to give away in our latest competition – I really wouldn’t mind a copy myself.

British Watercolours and Drawings – Lord Leverhulme’s Collection in the Lady Lever Art Gallery is more than 250 pages of wonderful images from the collection at Lady Lever. It includes work by Ford Madox Brown, Burne-Jones, Constable, Turner, Landseer, Millais, Rossetti and Reynolds, and is truly a celebration of British drawings and watercolours at their finest.

If you’d like to get your hands on your very own copy – and it would make a fab Christmas present if you decided not to keep it – just answer this question.

Q. British Watercolours and Drawings features this pastel, Pandora, by Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Who was the model for Pandora?

   a. Jane Morris   
   b. Elizabeth Siddal
   c. Alexa Wilding

Send us your name, address and answer using this contact form. The deadline for entries is noon on 12th November.

And as ever, if you don’t win a copy remember that you can buy it in our online book shop.

Updated: Don’t forget to enter via the contact form and not through the comments box.
