The World's Greatest Art: William Morris

The popularity and influence of William Morris cannot be underestimated – a man of many talents, he was a poet, writer, social campaigner, artist, designer and, with his Kelmscott Press, a fine book printer and publisher. A hugely important figure of the Arts and Crafts movement, he is best known for his superior wallpaper and textile designs, intricately weaving together natural motifs in highly stylized two-dimensional patterns with medieval influences. Organized into five sections – Life, Inspiration & Influences, Media & Techniques, Politics & Society and Arts & Crafts – The World’s Greatest Art: William Morris enables the reader to consider Morris from different angles and contexts, providing a broader understanding of this great artist.
