Edward Burne-Jones

24 October 2018 – 24 February 2019
Tate Britain | London, UK

Renowned for his otherworldly depictions of beauty inspired by myth, legend and the Bible, Edward Burne-Jones (1833 - 1898) was a pioneer of the symbolist movement and the only Pre-Raphaelite to achieve world-wide recognition in his lifetime.

Tate Britain's ambitious and wide-ranging exhibition is the first major Burne-Jones retrospective to be held in London for over 40 years. It will bring together over 150 works in different media including painting, stained glass and tapestry, reasserting him as one of the most influential British artists of the 19th century.

With depictions of Arthurian knights, Classical heroes and Biblical angels, the exhibition will gather all the major works from across Burne-Jones' four-decade career, charting his rise from an outsider of British art to one of the great artists of fin de siècle Europe.
