Corrections In a recent review of Rossetti at The Walker, Liverpool we incorrectly hinted that the artist had pets. This is incorrect. We were also unclear as the gentleman's parentage. Mr Nicholas Jones of Liverpool was kind enough to offer the following clarification: "Born 12 May 1828. Baptised Gabriel Charles Dante Rossetti. Born the second of four children of Gabriele Rossetti (exiled Italian patriot, Dante scholar and from 1830 Professor of Italian, King's College London) and Frances Polidori Rossetti (governess and teacher). His elder sister Maria Francesca was born the previous year." We apologise to both the artist and his family. Thanks also to Mr Jones for a tipping off some poor research which could have costed us a small fortune. All the of the relevant people have been fired.
