In 1871 Burne-Jones began a set of oils for William Graham, known as the 'small Briar Rose' series. He completed three canvases in 1873: 'The Briar Wood', 'The Council Chamber' and 'The Rose Bower', all currently in the collection of the Museo de Arte, Ponce, Puerto Rico.
A fourth subject, 'The Garden Court' is not known to have been completed, although a half-size watercolour sketch in a private collection may be of that date. This autotype by Frederick Hollyer is after a Burne-Jones drawing for this fourth scene now in a Private Collection.
A full colour, full length version of the same subject is also in Birmingham's Collection.
