The Flower Book - Scattered Starwort
Accession number: 1953P5.29
Colour facsimile. Collotype print.
A page from the facsimile edition of Burne-Jones' Flower Book, one of 38 watercolour designs reproduced by Henri Piazza et Cie, for the Fine Art Society, London in 1905. 'Scattered Starwort' refers to the aster flower (Chamaelirium luteum), also known as 'False Unicorn', 'Michelmas Daisy', and 'Blazing Star Root'. Whilst Burne-Jones did create countless images of angels, the closest image to 'Scattered Starwort' is his 'Nymphs of the Stars' (National Museum of Wales, Cardiff, 1896).
