Private Tour: Symbolism To Modernism, at Tate Britain (24/4/20)
24/4: Symbolism To Modernism - Edward Burne-Jones, Whistler
At Tate Britain
The art produced by Edward Burne-Jones and his circle were intended as the ultimate portrayal of beauty and a new aesthetic was born. For the first time in British Art painters tried to capture a mood with colour, line and subject. This theme was developed by James McNeill Whistler, who gave his paintings musical titles and endured a long and expensive court battle with Ruskin, the great critic over his painting Nocturne in Black and Gold, arguably one of the first abstract paintings in art.
