Edward Burne-Jones is one of the most celebrated artists of the Victorian period and this talk reveals his friendship with the De Morgans.

About this Event

Whilst most are aware of Burne-Jones’ friendship with William De Morgan, his links with the rest of the De Morgan family are not as well known.

This talk starts with a trip to Florence in 1863, and ends, rather unexpectedly, in Bournemouth in 1922. You will discover what Burne-Jones really thought about Evelyn De Morgan, hear the ridiculous mock-cockney the artists spoke in, and appreciate how similarities between Burne-Jones and Evelyn De Morgan paintings led to forged signatures and the reattribution of a painting.

The work of John Roddam Spencer Stanhope, William De Morgan, Edward Burne-Jones, and Philip Burne-Jones will feature.
