Edward Burne-Jones - In a Wood

7 x 15"
This seems to be connected with another of his watercolour's Green Summer
Burne Jones is not known to have sketched out of doors and this seems to be a purely imaginary woodscape. It is similar in style to woodscapes by his friend George Price Boyce who used the device here of placing tree stems across the front of the composition to give a sense of 'looking in' to the wood.
