The first major London retrospective of Pre-Raphaelite Edward Burne-Jones in over 40 years.

Born at the time of the Industrial Revolution, Burne-Jones, the ‘last of the Pre-Raphaelites’, was an artist who turned away from the march of technological progress and instead drew inspiration from myth and legend, and dream visions of lost worlds. It didn’t sit well with his time and he found himself an outsider for much of his life.

Recognition came at the end of the 19th century and he became highly influential in the Symbolist movement. He did, however, embody the Victorian work ethic and produced a huge number of works in different media. This exhibition explores and celebrates his uncompromising approach to art, displaying 150 pieces, including paintings, stained glass and tapestries.
