Burne-Jones was an artist who by the late 1800's
had revolutionized his profession by making
the Pre-Raphaelite movement a mainstream event
and using his artistic talents to create some
of the most beautiful artwork that has ever
come out of Britain.
When he was just six days old, Burne-Jones'
mother died due to complications of his birth.
By the 1880s Burne-Jones was already an international
figure, and he remained so until his death on
17 June 1898 at Fulham, London. He left this
world laden with honours. He had been given
the Legion of Honour, been made a baronet, and
awarded many European prizes.
