Join Sophie Lynford, Annette Woolard-Provine Curator of the Bancroft Collection, for a gallery talk on newly installed works in the Pre-Raphaelite galleries by Edward Burne-Jones. Over the course of his career, Burne-Jones experimented with various media. His colleague, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, remarked that Burne-Jones’s productions were “marvels of finish and imaginative detail.” This gallery talk examines Burne-Jones’s work on canvas, panel, paper, tile, and glass.
