Laus Veneris by Sir Edward Coley Burne- Jones A2 PosterThis outstanding portrait painting shows the legendary court of Venusberg, the city of love. The knight in the centre of the window is riding off to seek forgiveness for having given himself up to a life of pleasure in Venusberg. The Queen's women are playing music, known as the food of love. A rose, also a symbol of love, lies on the ground by the Queen. The tapestry in the background shows Cupid riding on the chariot of Venus, the goddess of love. Edward Burne-Jones was the leader of the second phase of the Pre-Raphaelite movement, and was one of the most influential artists of his time.
