Burgess was born in Chelsea, the son of Henry William Burgess who was a landscape painter to William IV. His great grandfather, Thomas Burgess, was the teacher of Gainsborough.



He exhibited works at the Royal Academy, the British Institution and the Society of British Artists. Burgess started his career by painting portraits and genres before travelling to Spain in 1858, accompanied by his friend and fellow artist Edwin Long, who would become his travelling companion on future painting trips to the country. For the next some thirty years, Burgess was an annual visitor to Spain, often spending days with Spanish peasants, living their life and sharing their food. He also went to Morocco at least once. In 1860, he married Sophia.



He died on 12 November 1897 at his home at 60 Finchley Road, London, from the congenital heart disease which had troubled him all his life, and was buried in the Paddington Cemetery at Willesden.
