THE MAN BEHIND THE FAMOUS FLORAL DESIGNS, William Morris Fiona Rose Monday 09 March 2020

The first lecture explores the early life of William Morris (1834–1896) before he founded his famous decorating firm in 1861. We examine the influences and experiences that helped form the single most influential designer of the 19th century.

The second lecture focuses on the most productive period of his life and looks at not just the business man but the man behind the famous floral designs.

Finally in the third part, we consider Morris’s lasting legacy into the 21st century.
