In light of the latest exhibition on Edward Burne-Jones (1833-1898) at Tate Britain (24 October 2018 – 24 February 2019), this two-day conference seeks a fresh reassessment of the artist who, standing at the forefront of a pivotal transition, was progressive but also resisted by ‘modernist’ art history. Burne-Jones’s complex use of tradition, which itself sought to challenge established artistic practices, is perhaps one reason he has been underappreciated, even as the Pre-Raphaelites have risen in popularity as the British nineteenth-century equivalent to the rebellious French avant-garde.

This conference will explore new facets of Burne-Jones’s vast and varied œuvre – we seek papers from a wide array of vantages to reflect the artist’s own innumerable interests that intersect in his pieces, which themselves reference one another. His paintings and decorative designs hang in galleries and churches throughout England and the world; this conference, in tandem with this major exhibition of his work at the Tate, anticipates renewed and energised international scholarship on the artist and his multitudinous connections, collaborations, and influences in the society, culture and art of the nineteenth century.

See the 'Reassessing Burne-Jones' conference website for further details.
