Charles Fairfax Murray was a painter, art dealer, collector, and close friend to William Morris, Burne-Jones, the Rossetti’s as well as being a protégé of John Ruskin. He started off his art career as a studio assistant to Burne-Jones and ended his life as a painter (his “Romeo and Juliet” is in the Delaware Art Museum Collection) and an expert on Classical Italian Paintings. Written by his grandson, this book gives a wonderful insight to the Victorian art world the Pre-Raphaelites were changing. This is an autographed copy.
