Burne-Jones made the four panels on this subject for his own North End House in Rottingdean.
The scenes are from Malory's telling of the tales.
Galahad with spear and shield standing on a promontory, his hands raised in prayer whilst the angel with the grail appears before him. Below, an inscription:"HOW GALAHAD SOUGHT THE SANGREAL AND FOUND IT BECAUSE HIS HEART WAS SINGLE SO HE FOLLOWED IT TO SARRAS THE CITY OF THE SPIRIT".
