Visiting William Morris house.

“Don’t copy any style at all, but make your own”

 

(William Morris)

 

That was a surprise to find so interesting and rich exhibition in a part of London that seemed to me wery busy only with motor engines.

 Today I discovered that:

  • Morris wanted to transform the Victorian age. He thought beauty was a basic human need and wanted to bring art into everyday life. He hated the effects of Victorian industrialisation, which had led to overcrowded towns and cities, slum housing, epidemic disease and environmental pollution.
  • He was creating he’s books in inspiration of old manuscripts.
  • He’s stained glass artworks are incredibly fine.
  • He was also writing beautiful poetry.
