At Southampton City Art Gallery, I stumbled upon this permanent exhibition, beautifully presented in an oak panel room.

My mouth fell open at the sight of ten…yes, ten large panels by Edward Burne-Jones telling the story of Perseus. Some are the ‘rough’ sketches of the paintings to come but they are genuinely stunning.

It sometimes pays not to do any research beforehand!

The final panel was a favourite and it did not fail to impress.
