Edward Burne-Jones, Victorian artist-dreamer by Stephen Wildman( Book )

21 editions published in 1998 in 3 languages and held by 783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A pupil of Dante Gabriel Rossetti and a protege of John Ruskin, Burne-Jones belonged to the second generation of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, creating a narrative style of romantic symbolism steeped in medieval legend and fused with the influence of Italian Renaissance masters that was to have widespread influence on both British and European art. Within the sophisticated culture of the late Victorian period, Burne-Jones's star rose rapidly, and by the 1880s he had become the establishment artist par excellence, one of the most admired and sought-after painters in Europe

Edward Burne-Jones is renowned for his beautiful and often melancholy evocations of a mythical, literary, ancient or medieval world. It will surprise many therefore to discover that he was a talented caricaturist and comic sketch artist with an impish sense of humour. Rarely published images from the British Museum will highlight: amusing sketches from everyday life, including colourful characters at the Turkish Baths; fond and humorous caricatures of William Morris and other members of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood; charming extracts from Burne-Jones's illustrated 'Letters to Katie', the young daughter of a friend and witty self-portraits of an increasingly frustrated artist at work
