OT: William Morris and Company: The Arts and Crafts Movement in Great Britain


Begoña and I visited this week the exhibition William Morris and Company: The Arts and Crafts Movement in Great Britain, at the Fundación Juan March exhibition hall in  Castelló 77, Madrid. This exhibition offers an unprecedented opportunity to explore the many faces of the designer, craftsman, retailer, poet, and social agitator William Morris (1834-1896), as well as those of the main figures in the Arts and Crafts movement. This new generation of architects, designers, artists and craftsmen, shared a passionate concern for the harmful effects of industrialization on society, working conditions and traditional British crafts.

Additional details can be found here.

Entry is free and will be open until 21 January 2018; Monday to Saturday and public holidays: 11:00 am – 8:00 pm; Sundays: 10:00 am – 14:00 pm. The exhibition will be closed on 24, 25 and 31 December, and on 1 and 6 January.

For those who, like me, have a limited knowledge on the figure of William Morris further details are available at Wikipedia here,

  1. I saw a William Morris exhibition in the UK a little while back – I wonder if it is the same one? I found it very interesting, and like you had not known much about him before…
    I like the snowflakes falling on your blog!

    1. Most likely it was the same exibition. Moira. Thanks. Fwiw I have nothing to do with the snowflakes, I think is just a standerd feature by WordPress at this time of the year. But I do like them too.
