A retrospective of Edward Burne-Jones in the Tate

"Edward Burne-Jones" is the first in 43 years with a major retrospective of one of the leading artists of the pre-Raphaelite movement in London. Lovers feature two large-scale narrative cycle that have never been shown together: four paintings from the series "Sleeping beauty" and works from the unfinished series "Perseus", which began in 1875.

Under the demonstration these dramatic paintings full of exquisite detail reserved two rooms. Posted in other exceptional artifacts from five collections – 150 paintings, drawings, tapestries and stained-glass Windows, combining pictorial and decorative art. Half a dozen paintings lent by the composer and theatre producer Andrew Lloyd Webber, writer of the cult musical "the phantom of the Opera" and "Jesus Christ superstar". Although a musician does it anonymously, rumors leaked to the press. He's long been collecting works by Victorian artists, and Burne-Jones is one of his favorites.

Edward Coley Burne-Jones was the only pre-Raphaelite, gained international recognition during his lifetime, and lead curator Alison Smith wants to present its "world painter".
