As occasional model for Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Edward Burne-Jones, Marie Spartali Stillman (1844-1927) remains a well-known face of the Pre-Raphaelite era. William James Stillman (1828-1901) founded and edited The Crayon , the first successful American fine art journal. Stillman painted with members of the Hudson River school and was a pioneering and creative photographer.
