Audio Description Tour: Edward Burne-Jones

Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones Laus Veneris 1873-1878 Laing Art Gallery, Newcastle upon Tyne

Join us for an audio description tour of Edward Burne-Jones

Blind and partially sighted visitors are invited to join an audio description tour of Edward Burne-Jones. One of the last Pre-Raphaelites, Burne-Jones brought imaginary worlds to life in awe-inspiring paintings, stained glass windows and tapestries.

Born in 1833, Burne-Jones rejected the industrial world of the Victorians, looking instead for inspiration from medieval art, religion, myths and legends.

He made spectacular works depicting Arthurian knights, classical heroes and Biblical angels – working across painting, stained glass, embroidery, jewellery and more. With his friend William Morris he was a pioneer of the arts and crafts movement, which aimed to bring beautiful design to everyone.​

Seats and hearing support earphones are provided.
