Since September, the Tate Britain show Pre-Raphaelites: Victorian Avant-Garde has allowed visitors to marvel at the technique and vision of the likes of Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Holman Hunt and John Everett Millais as they captured some of the most beautiful muses in art history.

Here in their latest set of beautifully edited promotion videos, the gallery have recruited some modern day muses to offer their unique perspective on the role of the muse, and on the artworks themselves.

Models Daisy Lowe (above), Karen Elson and Laura Bailey pick their favourites. Lowe in particular is illuminating about the English poet Christina Rossetti and the parallels between their lives.

It's another great piece of production from the Tate, and our favourite since Jon Snow's moving piece on his own highlights from their collection.
