Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones
Born Edward Coley Jones in 1833 in Birmingham. He was educated at the University of Oxford and later trained by Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Burne-Jones firmly believed in the rebirth of the romantic style that the Pre-Raphaelites are so well known for. Inspired by biblical, mythological and medievil themes, his are considered the finest of the Pre-Raphaelites. Notably the Story of Perseus, which can be seen in the Southapton Art Gallery, Hampshire, shows Burne-Jones' dreamy and sentimental style.
Aswell as a painter he designed stained glass windows, mosaics and tapestries for friend's firm, William Morris. His windows can be seen at Christ Chruch in Oxford, and Birmingham Catherdral.
Burne-Jones was knighted in 1894, four years before he died.
