Tastes and morality change so quickly that an artist can be mainstream one year and out of date the next year. Burne-Jones' beautiful romantic dreams of something that never was, never will be, in an unknowable land etc... would have sounded ridiculously romantic and old fashioned to the new generation of modernists.

So he had two choices. 1] Get with modernity and give up his innate sensibilities or 2] Remain true to himself and starve in a lonely garret.
