EDWARD BURNE-JONES: VICTORIAN PARADOX
Dr Rosalind Malandrinos, independent art historian
This three lecture course features two cities, two exhibitions and one romantic dreamer. It will reveal the unique work of Edward Coley Burne-Jones against the backdrop of increasingly industrial Victorian England. The years 1857 and 1877 were significant for him personally, and for the wider national art world.
