Edward Burne-Jones was a partner in William Morris’s decorative art firm. In 1886 it was commissioned to produce a tapestry of the Adoration of the Magi as a gift to Exeter College. Based upon Burne-Jones’s design, it became Morris & Co.’s most commercially successful tapestry, woven in a total of ten versions. In 1887 Burne-Jones revisited the tapestry design as a large-scale watercolor painting, rendered in more vibrant colors and intricate detail than the original. Titled The Star of Bethlehem, it measured 101 1/8 x 152 inches, making it the largest watercolor of the 19th century.
