Edward Coley Burne-Jones (1833-1898) -- protege of Pre-Raphaelite master Dante Gabriel Rossetti and close friend and associate of William Morris, pioneer of the Arts and Crafts Movement -- developed a unique style of painting that by the late 1870s had the critics enthralled. In art drawn from fairy tales, Arthurian legend, chivalric lore, and classical epic, Burne-Jones's exquisite imagery transported his audience out of their own progressive age into a romanticized past.

Curator and art historian Debra Mancoff supplies in Burne-Jones a fresh and illuminating portrait of the painter. More than a simple account of his life and works, she explores the enduring themes in his art and follows the artist in his quest for his aesthetic ideal.
