Beautiful gold-foiled hardback exhibition catalogue to accompany the major exhibition at Tate Britain. This sumptuously illustrated book charts Edward Burne-Jones’ remarkable journey from Pre-Raphaelite disciple to one of the most influential artists of the European fin de siècle. It shows how he pioneered a strikingly original approach to narrative and how he maintained his vision through meticulous attention to craftsmanship, creating works of ethereal beauty, distinguished by exquisite drawing and glorious colour. Essays by leading specialists celebrate Burne-Jones as an artist and intellectual and explore his legacy in the twentieth century, foregrounding the artist’s belief in the redemptive power of art and the radical possibilities of beauty. Condition: Light shelf-wear to boards, otherwise very good.
