Edward Burne-JonesA return to stained-glass grace

Edward Burne-Jones was an English artist born on August 28, 1833. Burne-Jones contributed to the Pre Raphaelite movement and died on June 17, 1898.

"I mean by a picture a beautiful, romantic dream of something that never was, never will be - in a light better than any light that ever shone - in a land no one can define or remember, only desire - and the forms divinely beautiful - and then I wake up, with the waking of Brynhild." — Edward Burne-Jones, written to a friend.
