Ottawa Collects Edward Burne-Jones

29 Jan 2010 - 20 Jun 2010

Installation. The Pre-Raphaelite painter Edward Burne-Jones had a profound influence on the Symbolist generation of the 1890s. During his lifetime, he was recognized internationally for the dreamy, mystical look of his models and a style of rhythmic, curvilinear lines. A number of private collectors in the city, including the artist’s great-great grandson, have generously agreed to lend works to this exhibition to be joined by works in the National Gallery’s collection.
