May Morris Exhibition in October


Here, hopefully

is the official announcement of the MAY MORRIS exhibition scheduled for October 2017 at the William Morris Gallery.

Two accompanying publications are also in the pipeline:  the papers from the 2016 May Morris Conference, which are being edited by Lynn Hulse, and a fully illustrated book being produced by Thames & Hudson for the V&A and WMG.

There is truly a great deal of new information about May's career and artworks, and great scope for future researches and assessments.

Spitalfields Nippers at WMG

on 19 January the Gentle Author is giving at talk on Horace Warner's photos of East End children which he discovered.   As he says, it's very appropriate location, owing to the direct links between William Morris   and the Warner wallpaper business where Morris & Co papers were printed.
