MH Baillie Scott and CFA Voysey, The Lake District & Beyond: Arts & Crafts Houses and Furnishings
22 July - 30 October 2011
The summer exhibition for Blackwell’s anniversary year looks at the work of two outstanding Arts & Crafts architect-designers: Charles Francis Annesley Voysey (1857-1941) and Mackay Hugh Baillie Scott (1865-1945), Blackwell’s architect. Voysey was Baillie Scott’s senior by nine years and had an enduring influence on him. It was the truth and “absolute sincerity” of Voysey’s architecture that appealed to Baillie Scott, whilst Voysey in his turn praised the younger man’s work.
The exhibition is an opportunity to look beyond the architecture to the interiors and furnishings designed by Voysey and Baillie Scott, and will include textiles, metalwork and furniture as well as architectural plans and archive material.
