English, 1833 - 1898

Sketch of Male Nude

Date: Before 1882

Edward Burne-Jones was one of the leading figures of the second wave of the Pre-Raphaelite movement in England. This movement began with a group of rebellious art students in the early 1850s, and by 1900 it had revolutionized virtually the entire Victorian art world. Its followers rejected the emphasis on study from the antique, as was promoted by the Royal Academy, the official body of art instruction and exhibition. Instead, many of the Pre-Raphaelites, like Burne- Jones, preferred subjects from poetry, literature, and the medieval past.
