Event description

Description

Morris’s sensitivity to the natural world combined with his innate talent as a designer enabled him to create patterns with endless combinations of flower forms. His ability to adapt, distort and combine them into harmonious patterns means a field guide to all his flowers remains frustratingly elusive. Yet through a deeper understanding of his early influences, his gardens, understanding of colour, favourite flowers and approach to their uses in his pattern, the visual language of William Morris’s flowers can be better revealed.

Join William Morris Gallery Curator Rowan Bain, as she discusses her new book William Morris’s Flowers. This beautifully illustrated book brings together Morris’s floral designs and explores the sources that inspired them.

Rowan Bain is Senior Curator at the William Morris Gallery, London. She has authored several publications and was co-author of May Morris: Arts & Crafts Designer which accompanied the William Morris Gallery exhibition May Morris: Art & Life
