About The Quest for Perfection Online Talk

Burne-Jones’s experiments with different media

With Dr Fiona Mann, Research Affiliate Oxford Brookes University

In her talk Fiona Mann will discuss the complexities faced by Burne-Jones in working with traditional materials such as vellum, silverpoint and gold to produce high quality works that were both decorative and unconventional.

This talk links to the major exhibition, The Pre-Raphaelites: Drawings and Watercolours at The Ashmolean.

The event will take place online via Zoom, and a link to join the event will be shared in advance by email.
