Born in 1833, Edward Burne-Jones rejected the industrial world of the Victorians, looking instead for inspiration from medieval art, religion, myths and legends. This exhibition – his first solo show at Tate since 1933 – charts Burne-Jones’s rise from an outsider with little formal art training to one of the most influential British artists of the late 19th century.

Other ways to enjoy Edward Burne-Jones

If you can’t make these times, Edward Burne-Jones is open to all members during Members Hours which take place on select Saturdays and Sundays from 09.00–10.00, offering the perfect start to your weekend.

For an in-depth look at the artist, Members are invited to book onto a Curator's Talk with Alison Smith, former Curator at Tate Britain and current Chief Curator at the National Portrait Gallery, or a Curator's Tour inside the exhibition led by Assistant Curator Tim Batchelor.
