Edward Burne-Jones
The Golden Stairs
Girls in white tunics trimmed with blue and garlanded with laurel leaves descending an outdoor golden spiral staircase. White doves perch on the edges of the roof above them. They each carry a musical instrument, flutes, violins, trumpets, tambourines, dulcimers, and so on, and are seemingly about to enter a grand hall with golden columns. (Pre-Raphaelite, 1884)
The Baleful Head
Perseus in armor showing the head of Medusa to Andromeda. Perseus rescued Andromeda from a sea monster to which she was being sacrificed and was promised her hand in marriage in return. However, Andromeda had previously been promised to someone else, who came with an army to claim her. Perseus turned the whole army to stone by showing them the head of Medusa the Gorgon, whom he had slain by looking only at her reflection. Here he shows the head to Andromeda by holding it up to be reflected in an elaborate marble well in an apple orchard. (Pre-Raphaelite, 1886-7)
A Musical Angel
An angel wearing blue robes lined with gold. The angel's wings have red feathers tipped with blue and her halo is blue. She is carrying a violin and a palm branch and stands before an open doorway and a red drapery. (Pre-Raphaelite, 1878-80)
The Rose Bower
From Burne-Jones' cycle of paintings "The Legend of Briar Rose" (the Sleeping Beauty). Here, the Sleeping Beauty, having pricked her finger on a spindle and been cast into a deep sleep, lies in her bower on a richly draped couch with her ladies-in-waiting asleep just where they were when the spell was cast, one still reaching toward a mirror and coffer of jewels. Over time, thorny rose brambles have grown through the castle windows and are draping the curtain behind the couch.
Here lies the hoarded love the key
To All the treasure that shall be
Come fated heart the gift to take
And smite the sleeping world awake. - William Morris
(Pre-Raphaelite, 1890)
Souls being Received into the Heavenly Paradise
Angels in a heavenly garden surrounded by crenellated walls greeting newly arrived souls, with a border of twining vines and flowers. A woodcut illustration in the style of a medieval tapestry for "The Golden Legend", a thirteenth-century collection of lives of the saints. The large white areas are not stitched. White fabric should be used. (Pre-Raphaelite, 1892)
The Star of Bethlehem
Mary, seated in a rose-covered manger thatched with straw, holding baby Jesus. To her left is Joseph, with a bundle of sticks and an axe at his feet. Hovering to Mary's right is an angel in shimmering robes holding a glowing star. The three kings, also richly robed, have removed their crowns and may be offering them to Jesus along with their gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. The background is a woodland filled with greenish light. This painting is based on a tapestry design Burne-Jones did for Morris & Co., which was woven with a different color scheme -- see BUR027. (Pre-Raphaelite, 1890)
The Adoration of the Magi
Mary, seated in a rose-covered manger thatched with straw, holding baby Jesus. To her left is Joseph, with a bundle of sticks and an axe at his feet. Hovering to Mary's right is an angel with brocade robes, flowers in her hair, and green wings, holding a glowing star. The three kings have removed their crowns and may be offering them to Jesus along with their gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. The background is a dark woodland with a small pond which catches the star's light. Other spaces are filled in traditional tapestry style with flowers, especially Madonna lilies. Burne-Jones designed this tapestry for Morris & Co. He also made a painting of this scene with a different color scheme -- see BUR023. (Pre-Raphaelite, 1887)
The Failure of Sir Gawaine: Sir Gawaine and Sir Uwaine at the Ruined Chapel
King Arthur's knights Sir Uwaine (left) and Sir Gawain (right) on the quest for the Holy Grail. After many days of riding, they arrive at a deserted chapel but are denied entry by an angel. It is revealed to them that they will not attain the Holy Grail because they lack charity, virtue, and faith. A brilliant light within the chapel suggests that the Holy Grail is inside. This is one of a series of "Quest for the Grail" tapestries created by William Morris & Co. (Pre-Raphaelite, 1895-6)
Flora
The Roman goddess Flora, goddess of flowers and spring, on a dark gray-blue background with an abundance of different flowers. She is wearing a rose gown with a blue kirtle over it, has a garland of flowers in her hair, and holds more flowers in her hand. The border is of gold acanthus leaves with the label "Flora" at the top. This is based on a wool and silk tapestry produced by William Morris & Co. The figure is by Burne-Jones but the floral ground and border is by J. H. Dearle. (1885)
 
Frederic William Burton
The Meeting on the Turret Stairs
A theme from a medieval Danish ballad, Hellelil bidding farewell to Hildrebrand, Prince of Engelland, one of her personal guards, with whom she has fallen in love. In consequence of this, her father has ordered his seven sons to kill Hildrebrand, but instead Hildebrand kills all but the youngest, then dies of his wounds, and Hellelil dies soon after. (Pre-Raphaelite, 1864)
 
Gustave Caillebotte
Portraits in the Countryside
The artist's mother along with his aunt, cousin, and a family friend. The ladies are seated in a garden courtyard outside a house. The older women are in black; the young lady is in gray. Three of them are stitching at needlework, while the fourth is reading (but has an embroidery stand close at hand). An orange-striped window awning and a bed of bright red flowers add bright notes to the scene. (Impressionist, 1876)
 
Caravaggio
Madonna di Loreto
The Virgin Mary, holding baby Jesus, appears to a peasant couple on a pilgrimage (indicated by their staves), who kneel before her in worship. The setting is a humble building with flaking walls. The Virgin is simply dressed and barefoot. Also known as "Madonna di Pellegrini" (Madonna of the pilgrims). We also offer a pattern of just the mother and child (see CAR001-D) (Baroque, 1604-6)
Madonna di Loreto (detail)
A detail from the Madonna di Loreto or Madonna di Pellegrini showing the Virgin holding baby Jesus. She is simply dressed and is in a humble setting. This pattern has more detail than the corresponding section of the full pattern, which we also offer (see CAR001, or compare them side by side). (Baroque, 1604-6)
