Burne-Jones
by Alison Smith




Overview -
Starting as an outsider in British art and spending much of his life in isolation, Edward Burne-Jones (1833-1898) became a key figure in the art world at the end of the 19th century and a pioneer of the symbolist movement. He challenged society by disengaging his art from the modern world, offering a parallel universe based on myth, legend, and the Bible. Working in a wide range of materials, he pioneered a radical approach to narrative in works created for both public and intimate settings.

This book is published to accompany a major retrospective at Tate Britain, London, showcasing 150 works in different media, including painting, stained glass, and tapestry, all of which display Burne-Jones's belief in the redemptive power of art.
