The Info List - Philip Burne-Jones

Sir Philip Burne-Jones, 2nd Baronet
(2 October 1861 – 21 June 1926)[1] was the first child of the British Pre-Raphaelite
artist Sir Edward Burne-Jones
Edward Burne-Jones
and his wife Georgiana Macdonald. He became a well-known painter in his own right, producing more than 60 paintings, including portraits, landscapes, and poetic fantasies. Life and career[edit] He was born in London, England
in 1861 and was educated at Marlborough College. He attended Oxford University

for two years, but dropped out. To appease his parents over this failure, he agreed to take lessons in painting in London. Philip did focus on painting seriously. His level of skill was high and he exhibited his work in well-known galleries in London
and Paris. The Royal Academy

exhibited his work eleven times between 1898 and 1918, and his work was also shown in the Paris Salon
Paris Salon
of 1900. There he exhibited his portrait of his father, now in the National Portrait Gallery. He painted the portraits of many well-known individuals of the time. His most famous work, The Vampire, depicting a woman straddling an unconscious man, was believed to have been modelled by the actress Mrs Patrick Campbell, with whom Burne-Jones had been romantically linked.[2] The painting also inspired his cousin Rudyard Kipling's poem of the same name. Having a famous father was difficult for him, and it was Philip's fate in life that his work was often compared unfavourably with that of his father. Upon his father's death in 1898, Philip succeeded to the title of baronet that had been bestowed on his father in 1894. It is said that his father had accepted the title only because Philip was so keen to inherit it. Burne-Jones visited the United States

in 1902, where he was popular in fashionable society. He lived out most of his life in London, where he died in 1926. References[edit]
