Tristram and Iseult by Edward Burne-Jones, 1872

Medium: Oil on Canvas

Abandoned in the 19th century, Burne-Jones' portrait of ill-fated lovers was revisited and correctly re-identified by art scholars centuries later. It's believed that the love triangle depicted in this painting may have reflected the emotional turmoil over the artist's own love triangle at the time with a Greek model and his wife.
