Burne-Jones, Edward Coley


Born Aug. 28, 1833, in Birmingham; died June 17, 1898, in London. English painter and graphic artist.

In 1859 and 1862, Burne-Jones worked in Italy. He was influenced by D. G. Rossetti and belonged to the younger generation of the Pre-Raphaelites. Characteristic of Burne-Jones is a mannered and artificial stylization of the painting of the quattrocento, which gives his symbolist pictures on lyrical and legendary themes the decadent features of the salon style. Burne-Jones’ works include Love Amid the Ruins (1893; Tate Gallery, London), watercolors (done chiefly between 1864 and 1870), illustrations (The Works of Geoffrey Chaucer, 1896; done in collaboration with W. Morris), and designs for stained-glass windows, tapestries, and mosaics (for the Morris workshops).
