Topsy and Ned Jones, settled on the Settle in Red Lion Square

Max Beerbohm

1922

Rossetti and His Circle, Plate 6

6 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches

This picture, which depicts the two close friends, William Morris (Topsy) Edward Burne-Jones, in one of the medieval- or renaissance-revival pieces of furniture on which they collaborated, follows rather closely on the delightful caricatures of which Burne-Jones was a master — a suprising side of an artist noted for his paintings of idealized love [GPL].
