Family relationschips
this field records any family relationship to one or more other artist(s).
Burnier married the English Julia Furnival, whom he met in Düsseldorf in 1870, in London in 1871. Julia died during a bombardment in Düsseldorf together with her son-in-law, the painter Max Stern ; his wife Alice died shortly afterwards of the injuries incurred during the same attack). They had three children, a son Hugo (1872-1929), who became a musician/composer and two daughters Christine (*1873-?) [Christine wrote a memory to her family in Düsseldorf 1965, so she must have died after 1965] and Alice (1877-1943), wife of Max Stern (1872-1943)
