Summary

In 1890, artist Edward Burne-Jones finished a monumental series of paintings inspired by Sleeping Beauty.

Told through the eyes of the five women in his life - wives, daughters and mistresses of famous artists - this is the astonishing story behind that famous painting - a story of love, obsession, scandal and betrayal.
