Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones (August 28,1833 - June 17, 1898)was a British artist, closely associated with that of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood.
Burne-Jones was born in Birmingham and studied theology at Exeter College, Oxford, where he became a friend of William Morris. He studied under Rossetti, but developed his own style influenced by his travels in Italy.
In 1860 Burne-Jones married Georgiana MacDonald, one of the Macdonald sisters. Another sister married the artist Sir Edward Poynter, a further sister married the ironmaster Alfred Baldwin and was the mother of the Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin, and yet another sister was the mother of Rudyard Kipling.
