Exhibition: William Morris and the Arts & Crafts

A great show in the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya. Open untill May 21, 2018!

It explains in a very entertaining fashion the trajectory of William Morris, a prominent figure in the English Arts & Crafts movement. There you will find not only furniture, but a great array of tapestry, wall paper designs, book cover designs, glasswork, etc.

There are several works by other designers and makers, such as Sideny Barnsley (Edward Barnsley's father), C. R. Mackintosh or the great (unkown to me) Richard Riemersmid.

Since I wasn't allowed to take pictures, I'll post here some that I found online.

I couldn't resist to buy a notebook with one of Morris' famous wallpaper designs!
