The Beguiling of Merlin, 1874: Canvas Replica Painting: Large
By artist Edward Burne-Jones (1833-1898), in the Lady Lever Art Gallery, Merseyside, UK
After infatuating Merlin and learning his skills at enchantment, the beguiling Nimue uses the new techniques to send her teacher into a deep sleep in this work fraught with magic. Burne-Jones exhibited this painting at the Grosvenor Gallery, a new rival to the Royal Academy, where its popularity made him a star of the new Aesthetic Movement. 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.
