Burne-Jones Retrospective at Tate Britain FULLY BOOKED Rosalind Whyte Monday 12 November 2018

Day of Special Interest - Edward Burne-Jones at Tate Britain on Monday 12th November 2018 comprising a lecture by Rosalind Whyte, entrance to the exhibition and refreshments.

The last of the Pre-Raphaelites, Burne-Jones is synonymous with a refined and spiritualised style of beauty.

From being an outsider in British art, and spending much of his life in isolation, Burne-Jones(1833–1898) became a key figure in the art world at the end of the 19th century and a pioneer of the symbolist movement.

He challenged society by disengaging his art from the modern world, offering a parallel universe based on myth, legend and the Bible. Working in a wide range of materials, he pioneered a radical new approach to narrative in works created for both public and intimate settings.

This exhibition is London’s first major retrospective of the artist's work for over 40 years, and showcases 150 works in different media, including painting, stained glass and tapestry, all of which foreground Burne-Jones's belief in the redemptive power of art.
