Book Description
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. AUTHOR BIO: David Peters Corbett is reader in the history of art at the University of York and author of Walter Sickert in Tate's British Artists Series.

From Library Journal
Usually identified with the Pre-Raphaelites, Burne-Jones (1833-98) was actually a latecomer to the Brotherhood. As Ash ( Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema , Abrams, 1990) maintains here, he was finally regarded as the leader of the subsequent Aesthetic movement, a percursor of Symbolism. Described as the "first monograph in 20 years" on Burne-Jones, this work is art publishing at its most sumptuous. In the 40 oversize plates (14" 11"), Burne-Jones's dark woods and dreaming maidens appear at their most compelling. Each plate includes the exact size of the original, narrative on the subject matter, and current location. Highly recommended.- Joseph Hewgley, Nashville P.L.Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc.


May and Amy: A True Story of Family, Forbidden Love, and the Secret Lives of May Gaskell, Her Daughter Amy, and Sir Edward Burne-Jones

From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. The Victorian era's convoluted romances are famously entertaining: men and women, married (but not to each other), exchanging passionate letters and whispering endearments yet frequently remaining virtuous in their actions. May Gaskell, a proper British society woman at the turn of the 20th century, was no stranger to these fervent friendships. For six years, the unhappily married Gaskell corresponded romantically with Edward Burne-Jones, the pre-Raphaelite artist. Each promised to destroy the other's letters, but Gaskell, comforted by rereading them, preserved hers for "those who come after." These letters—as well as period novels, Burne-Jones's paintings and family photographs—reveal Gaskell family secrets and tragedies, including the strange death of Gaskell's daughter Amy ("all...

From Publishers Weekly
As a schoolboy in Birmingham, England, Burne-Jones was already signing his name "Edouard de Bymyngham"--an early romantic impulse borne out by the life and work of this second-generation Pre-Raphaelite and leader of the aesthetic movement, whose massive output of watercolor and oil paintings, intricate pencil drawings, tapestries, stained-glass windows and other decorative objects are gathered this summer at a Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibit in New York City. In this richly illustrated monograph, Wood, a Victorianist and London gallery owner, provides a sometimes cursory but fervent portrait of the artist, whose often murky technique and sentimental narrative proclivities (Arthurian legend and fairy tales figure hugely) have had a checkered critical history. Although he was the first artist to be given a...
