About William Morris
Morris derived profound inspiration from the English countryside, which informed his lush visual vernacular of floral and foliate motifs. He designed highly decorative wallpapers, textiles, furniture, stained glass, and books in abundance as the leading figure of the Arts and Crafts movement in Britain.
