Storyline

Ruskin is annoyed that Lizzie - frequently taking laudanum - and Rossetti are squandering his advance on wild parties and moves Lizzie's studio into his house. Effie warns her not to allow Ruskin to dominate her but she holds her own conversing with him and his mother. Rossetti takes up with buxom working girl Fanny Cornforth, using her as his next model. He is pursued by two of his students, would-be artists Burne-Jones and Morris ,and eventually admits them to the Brotherhood after they have saved his church mural from fading. Excess laudanum makes Lizzie ill but Rossetti fulfils his pledge to marry her on her recovery. However, minutes after the ceremony he is setting lustful eyes on Morris' fiancee Jane.
