The Baleful Head, 1886: Canvas Replica Painting: Large
By artist Edward Burne-Jones (1833-1898), in the Staatsgalerie, Stuttgart, Germany
Perseus shows Andromeda the head of the slain Medusa, viewable only by reflection lest the viewer be turned to stone. (Interestingly, Andromeda seems to be gazing at Perseus instead!) From the artist's series based on the epic poem by William Morris, the work typifies the romantic mythological subjects for which Burne-Jones is so beloved. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its subtle brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. Our replica European style, bright gold-toned, ribbed frame is cast in quality designer resin with an acanthus leaf and floret border that draws the eye toward the beautiful image.

   Edward Burne-Jones (1833-1898)

English painter, designer and illustrator Edward Burne-Jones was born in Birmingham and studied at the University of Oxford. Jones was trained as a Pre-Raphaelite and shared their passion for returning art to their concept of purity of form, stylization, and extreme morality of medieval painting and design.

Burne-Jones's paintings are noted for their sentimental and romantic style with a dreamlike ambiance and oft thought to be prime examples of the Pre-Raphaelite style. He is largely responsible for bringing the Pre-Raphaelites to the mainstream British art world, while also creating beautiful and exquisite artwork of his own.

Burne-Jones was also prominent in the revival of applying the medieval arts, which was led by William Morris, a friend from Oxford days. With Morris, Burne-Jones collaborated on stained-glass windows, mosaics and tapestries, including The Arming and Departure of the Knights.
