The Vampire by Philip Burne-Jones
The Vampire was the most celebrated work of British painter, Sir Philip Burne-Jones (1861-1926). He was the son of Sir Edward Burne-Jones, who was connected to the Pre-Raphaelite art movement.
A poem called The Vampire, written by Rudyard Kipling, was inspired by this painting.
Philip Burne-Jones produced more than 60 paintings during his life, and his work was exhibited in prestigious galleries in both London and Paris. He was, however, never fully able to step out of the shadow of his more famous father.
I was already completely captivated by The Vampire before stumbling upon the delightful portrait of the artist with his cat, but now I'm even more impressed by Philip Burne-Jones.
