In the words of his biographer Fiona MacCarthy, Edward Burne-Jones was ‘one of the great, if not the greatest, of Victorian narrative painters’.
"Edward Burne-Jones was an artist who by the late 1800's had revolutionized his profession by making the Pre-Raphaelite movement a mainstream event and using his artistic talents to create some of the most beautiful artwork that has ever come out of Britain." (University of Rochester)
"As Burne-Jones’ work became increasing elaborate within his later compositions, so did the preparatory sketches, these exquisite and sensitive drawings aided the artist to create highly realistic and emotional depictions of the human form, they were not just a compliment to the final piece, but works of art in themselves." (Sothebys.com)
Edward Burne-Jones (English 1833-1898) "one of the leading painters and designers of late 19th-century England, whose romantic paintings using medieval imagery were among the last manifestations of the Pre-Raphaelite style. More long-lasting is his influence as a pioneer of the revival of the ideal of the “artist-craftsman,” so influential to the development of 20th-century industrial design." (Britannica.com)
