Explore Jones Portrait, 1872 Medium, and more!

Tristram and Iseult by Edward Burne-Jones, 1872 Medium: Oil on Canvas Abandoned in the 19th century, Burne-Jones' portrait of ill-fated lovers was revisited and correctly re-identified by art scholars centuries later. It's believed that the love triangle depicted in this painting may have reflected the emotional turmoil over the artist's own love triangle at the time with a Greek model and his wife.

OTOH this is how Burne-Jones saw May's father, his close friend. Note to Jane Morris, telling her that Morris will be home late.
