This lecture looks at the outstanding contribu-tion to English stained glass of one of the most idiosyncratic of artists. From 1861, Burne-Jones (already recognised as a leading stained glass designer and painter) worked exclusively for William Morris and his compa-nies. His increasingly pictorial and symbolist style had a far reaching effect on stained glass design in Britain, America and Australia.
