EDWARD BURNE-JONES: VICTORIAN ARTIST DREAMER. New York: Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1998. Other Notes: The Golden Stairs is one of the best-known paintings by the Pre-Raphaelite artist Edward Burne-Jones, and is one of many paintings he sketched out in 1872 following a trip to Italy. He began work on the canvas in 1876 and finished it in great haste in April 1880, just days before the Grosvenor Gallery exhibition was to open. The figures of the musicians were drawn from professional models, but the heads are young women of Burne-Jones's circle. Some identifications have been made as follows: his daughter Margaret is fourth from top, holding a trumpet. Edith Gellibrand, known by the stage name Edith Chester, is seventh from top, seen stooping. May Morris, daughter of William Morris, is ninth from top, holding a violin. Frances Graham, later known as Lady Horner, daughter of William Graham, is bottom left, holding cymbals. Standing behind her on the stairs is Mary Gladstone, daughter of William Gladstone. Others include Laura Tennant, later known as Laura Lyttelton, and Mary Stuart-Wortley, later Lady Lovelace. The painting was purchased by Cyril Flower (1843-1907), later Lord Battersea, a politician and art patron, and was bequeathed by him to the Tate Gallery-London, where it remains today.
