My money's on Louis XIV
I'm not sure who Rossetti's model was but she looks just like Kelly!
i actually had a shirt with leg-o-mutton sleeves when i was just a bitty little hippie girl. :-)
The model was a famous English artist's model names Elizabeth (Lizzie) Siddal (I hope I spelled the name right)She was married to Dante Rossetti, who also painted the picture if I'm not mistaken. He was a founding member of the Pre-Raphaelite society. I have always been a huge fan of their work, and I think Elizabeth Siddal was a gorgeous woman. She also posed for the famous painting of Ophelia, but Rossetti didn't paint that one. I forgot which one painted that one.
