(including designs known to have been created but not entered in the accounts); John Christian on Burne-Jones’s roles as both designer and painter; Albert Tannler on the complex influence of Burne-Jones and Morris in the USA; Brian Clarke with a contemporary artist’s reaction to Burne-Jones’s stained glass; Martin Harrison on Burne-Jones’s stained glass in transition, as shown by the Lyndhurst ‘New Jerusalem’ window; and Tony Benyon’s important new biographical research on the stained glass workers employed by Morris & Company. Plus, a hitherto unknown photograph of the young Burne-Jones and a specially-written new poem about the artist…

Also, new commissions in the UK and a powerful scheme by Judith Schaechter installed in a former prison in Philadelphia; conservation at Stirling Castle; obituaries for the Duke of Grafton, Lawrence Lee, Harry Harvey and Adelle Corrin; extensive book reviews and more.
