Edward Burne-Jones (1833–1898) was a leading artist in what is often referred to as the second generation of the Pre-Raphaelite movement. Inspired by medieval, classical, and biblical themes, his paintings of graceful women, angels, gods, and heroes are dreamlike and sentimental. He also designed mosaics, tapestries, and stained-glass windows for churches throughout England. This fascinating scholarly study sheds new light on the inspiration and working practices of this most romantic of artists.
