Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones, 1st Bt

(1833-1898), Painter and designer

Later Victorian Portraits Catalogue

Sitter in 24 portraits
Artist associated with 1 portrait
Painter and designer; inspired to take up art through his friendship with Dante Gabriel Rossetti; lifelong friend and collaborator of William Morris, for whom he designed stained-glass windows, tapestries, tiles and book illustrations. Burne-Jones' paintings of classical subjects and medieval romances exemplify the aesthetic dream-world of late nineteenth-century art. His reputation reached its height in the 1880s but began to decline during his lifetime with the onset of the Impressionists, whose style and choice of subject matter he despised.
