The Pre-Raphaelite artist Edward  Burne-Jones told his friends: ‘the more materialistic science becomes, the more angels I shall paint.’ His stained glass designs, tapestries and pictures were not simply beautiful -they were subversive, offering an antidote to Victorian ideals of industrialisation and progress. This lecture reveals the rich and rebellious world of Burne-Jones’ imagination.
