Jane Burden: How a Pre-Raphaelite model changed our image of angels

Prof. Roger Homan considers how the Pre-Raphaelite model Jane Burden changed our collective mental image of the appearance of angels.

I found this to be an interesting post,  although the author does mention Jane’s appearing in Burne-Jones’s The Beguiling of Merlin, when the model was actually Mary Zambaco and also The Golden Stairs–again, not Jane.
