Rare Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones painting may fetch $3.4 million

UPI News Service, 01/27/2005 

An 1880 painting by Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones has been rediscovered after almost a century and will be sold in London.

"A Sea Nymph," which had not been seen since it was sold by London entrepreneur William Connal in 1908, is expected to sell for about $3.4 million when it is auctioned by Christie's in June, the BBC reported Thursday.

The painting disappeared after an art dealer bought it at Christie's in 1908 but was recently found to be in the Connal family's possession and is now being sold by a descendant. It will be exhibited in March with another Burne-Jones work, "A Wood-Nymph," which was also owned by William Connal.

Burne-Jones was linked to the Arts and Crafts movement, which included the disciplines of painting, furniture-making and fabric design. He died in 1898.
