Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones, 1st Baronet, A.R.A. (August 28, 1833 – June 17, 1898) was a British designer and artist affiliated with the late Pre-Raphaelite movement. Burne-Jones worked closely with William Morris on various artworks as a founding partner in Morris, Marshall, Faulkner, and Company. Burne-Jones worked on stained glass art in Britain. In addition to painting and stained glass, Burne-Jones worked in a variety of crafts, including designing mosaics, tapestries, ceramic tiles, jewelery, woodcuts, and book illustration.
Burne-Jones’s early artworks were inspired by Dante Gabriel Rossetti. By the 1860s, however, he started to find his own artistic style. In 1877, he was exhibited eight oil paintings at the Grosvenor Gallery (a new rival to the Royal Academy). One of the eight paintings was The Beguiling of Merlin. The showing was favorable to him and he became the light of the new Aesthetic Movement. Learn more »
