Edward Burne-Jones' Mythical Paintings: The Pygmalion of the Pre-Raphaelite Painters


Edward Burne-Jones' Mythical Paintings: The Pygmalion of the Pre-Raphaelite Painters by Liana De Girolami Cheney
English | 2013 | ISBN: 1433118769 | 271 pages | PDF | 11 MB

This book focuses on Sir Edward Burne-Jones’ mythical paintings from 1868 to 1886. His artistic training and traveling experiences, his love for the Greek-sculptress, Maria Zambaco, and his aesthetic sensibility provided the background for these mythical paintings. This book analyzes two main concepts: Burne-Jones’ assimilation of Neoplatonic ideal beauty as depicted in his solo and narrative paintings, and Burne-Jones’ fusion of the classical and emblematic traditions in his imagery.
