Реферат: Burne-Jones, Sir Edward Coley

Burne-Jones, Sir Edward Coley, professional name of EDWARD COLEY JONES (1833-1898),English painter, designer, and illustrator, born in Birmingham and educated atthe University of Oxford. Trained by the Pre-Raphaelite painter Dante GabrielRossetti, Burne-Jones shared the Pre-Raphaelites' concern with restoring to artwhat they considered the purity of form, stylization, and high moral tone ofmedieval painting and design. His paintings, inspired by medieval, classical,and biblical themes, are noted for their sentimentality and dreamlikeromanticized style; they are generally considered among the finest works of thePre-Raphaelite school. They include King Cophetua and the Beggar Maid(1884, Tate Gallery, London).

Burne-Joneswas also prominent in the revival of medieval applied arts led by his Oxfordfriend the poet and artist William Morris. For Morris's firm he designedstained-glass windows, mosaics, and tapestries. His windows can be seen in manyEnglish churches, including Christ Church, Oxford, and Birmingham Cathedral. Healso illustrated books of Morris's Kelmscott Press, notably Chaucer (1896).Burne-Jones was knighted in 1894.
