A striking tribute to Burne-Jones's favourite subjects: graceful girls, angels, gods, heroes and heroines. Generally melancholy-looking, thoughtful, or in repose, the subjects of Burne-Jones's early paintings bore much similarity to Rossetti who had persuaded him to give up theology in favor of art at Oxford. A lifelong friend of William Morris, Burne-Jones's output was prodigious by any standards - over 1,000 cartoons for stained glass alone, and over 200 oil paintings in his lifetime. Instantly recognisable his works now grace the Tate Gallery, V&A, Walker Art Gallery, and Christ Church Oxford, in addition to often being seen adorning cards, gifts, and objects d'art. The book depicts his beautiful artwork throughout its pages. Patrick Bade, author of the text, is a leading art historian and international guest speaker.
