Frank Dicksee

Sir Francis Bernard Dicksee (1853-1928) was a painter and illustrator, the son of Thomas Francis Dicksee. He appears to be stylistically linked to the Pre-Raphaelites.

 Chivalry (1885)
 Paolo and Francesca
 Portrait of the Hon. Mrs Ernest Guinness (1912)
 Romeo and Juliet
 The Duet
The Two Crowns
[in case it's not clear, this is an allegory of the contrast between earthly and 
spiritual power; one crown is of gold, worn by the king on horseback, 
and one is of thorns, worn by the Christ in the statue at right]
