The angels on our Christmas cards, the stained glass in our churches - the work of Burne-Jones is all around us. This authoritative, engaging and sympathetic biography charts the life and achievements of an artist who formed a bridge between the Victorians and the Moderns, influencing both Klimt and Picasso. It charts his public success and private struggles: illness, depression, a devastating rift with William Morris, and the fatal susceptibility to female beauty that inspired his art but wrecked his marriage.
