Edward Burne-Jones: Forms Divinely Beautiful
Prints from Nottingham City Museums’ Collection

8 February to 12 July 2020

In 1900, Nottingham City Museums purchased a folio of prints, one of 200 such reproductions of Edward Burne-Jones’s paintings, compiled by his son Philip, to celebrate and promote his famous father’s work.

 

These prints are photogravures, made from a photographic negative, which is transferred to a metal plate and etched by The Berlin Photographic Company.  They are works of art in their own right, depicting Burne-Jones’s paintings in a new, smoky, inky light, the watercolours and oils rendered into velvety black and white, the textures and lines, figures and scenes redefined in print. 

In this exhibition we celebrate these prints again and revisit the subjects and stories depicted, examining Burne-Jones’s unique eye and his development of the Aesthetic style, as well as his serene and dreamlike portrayal of female beauty.

This exhibition is located in the King Charles II Rooms and included in the entry charge.
