William Morris: A Sense of Place
26 June - 17 October 2010
Morris’s sense of place is the unifying thread which runs through this comprehensive exhibition at Blackwell covering his domestic life, design work, writings and political beliefs. Material illustrating his adult life, from shared lodgings at Red Lion Square, to his first married home at Red House, his country retreat at Kelmscott Manor in the Cotswolds and his final home at Kelmscott House in Hammersmith, show how his domestic environment formed an important backdrop for his creativity and the formulation of his ideas about society. Designs and samples, textiles, books, and photographs have been collected from public and private collections to illustrate the life and work of the Father of the Arts & Crafts.
