Sir Edward Burne-Jones (1833-1898) was a British artist and designer associated with the Pre-Raphaelites, who worked closely with William Morris on a wide range of decorative arts. His work was focused on ideals of beauty, and on art itself as an object of beauty.

Burne-Jones was closely involved in the rejuvenation of the tradition of stained glass art in England where his work can be found in cathedrals.

Heavily inspired by Dante Gabriel Rossetti he was rediscovered in the 20th Century, and became the subject of major exhibitions in the late 20th Century at the Barbican Art Gallery London, Tate exhibit and on the 100th anniversary of his death at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1998, before traveling to the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery and the Musee d'Orsay, Paris.
