Description: In this friendly three-page letter, the Pre-Raphaelite artist thanks a friend for a “lovely and most desirable present” and laments about the changing light. He writes in part: “Just look at this day – the thickest of fogs – it is white now and will be yellow by 10 – and orange by noon & black by afternoon – the devil take it, for he only could do anything with it.” Written on a folded sheet of  stationery imprinted: “The Grange, 49, North End Road, West Kensington, W.” (folded it measures: 6 7/8″ x 4 3/8″). Burne-Jones signed the letter with his initials, “EBJ”. Item #A01622

Edward Burne-Jones (1833-1898) was a British artist and craftsman. Though he is best remembered today for his oil paintings and his stained-glass windows including those at Christ Church, Oxford, he also worked with jewelry, tapestry, mosaic, and illustration.
