The Beloved (The Bride), 1865-1866

Rossetti inscribed the frame with lines from The Song of Solomon and Psalm 45:

My beloved is mine and I am his. (The Song of Solomon 2:16). Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine. (The Song of Solomon 1:2). She shall be brought unto the King in raiment of needlework: the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee. (Psalms 45:14)
