EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases Burne-Jones' "Study of two male nudes for Arthur in Avalon" from 1885. The pencil on paper artwork, measuring 33x21 cm, is a remarkable example of British art from the late nineteenth century. In this piece, we witness the artist's mastery in capturing the human form with exquisite detail and sensitivity. The two young men depicted here are presented in a front view, their bare chests and bodies exposed. One man leans on his elbow while resting his arm, exuding an air of contemplation and poise. The other stands beside him with hands clasped together, displaying a sense of youthful energy. Burne-Jones' pre-Raphaelite style is evident in this drawing as he pays meticulous attention to every line and shadow. His skillful use of pencil creates a stunning representation of these figures' skin tones and postures. As we delve into this artwork, it becomes apparent that it serves as an essential study for Burne-Jones' larger work titled "Arthur in Avalon. " This piece offers us insight into the artist's creative process and allows us to appreciate the depth of his artistic vision. With its timeless beauty and historical significance, this image transports us back to Victorian England where art was used to explore themes such as masculinity, mythology, and human connection. It is truly a testament to Burne-Jones' talent as both painter and draftsman.
