Simeon Solomon (1840-1905) was a Jewish pre-Raphaelite artist, follower of Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Algernon Charles Swinburne. Sir Edward Burne-Jones once declared Solomon “the best of us all.” Solomon was arrested for homosexual behavior in 1873 and thereafter became a social outcast by his peers and society, continuing to produce art but dying financially destitute.
