Sir Edward Burne-Jones (1833-1898) was an English painter, illustrator, and designer, a key figure in the second phase of Pre-Raphaelitism. His classical style, highly conscious of aesthetic values, however, was seen as outmoded by the outbreak of the First World War in 1914. The Victorian values represented in his art prints were seen as sentimental and the heroines with their submissive postures were seen as lacking the toughness of the modern emancipated woman. Edward Jones acquired the extra surname Burne to differentiate himself from the legions of Jones’s who painted. Enjoy art prints from Sir Edward Burne-Jones here at artrepublic.
