About this book
A new biography of Edward Burne-Jones, one of the greatest British artists of the second half of the 19th century. A leading figure, with Oscar Wilde, in the aesthetic movement of the 1880s, he influenced not just his immediate circle, but artists such as Klimt and Picasso. MacCarthy explores and re-evaluates his art and life, and the devastating rift with his great friend and collaborator, William Morris. 'A true pleasure to read...' Jan Marsh, "Independent"
