Event description

Description

A talk by Max Donnelly, curator of Nineteenth-Century Furniture at the V&A.
Drawing on the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum, Max Donnelly will consider how collaborations among architects, designers, artists and craftworkers resulted in the production of Arts and Crafts furniture. Examples will range from the furniture made for the Morrises at Red House and by ‘the Firm’, to that produced by urban Arts and Crafts enterprises such as the Century Guild and the rural workshops established by C.R. Ashbee, Ernest Gimson and Ernest and Sidney Barnsley.

His publications include a chapter on furniture for the monograph, C.F.A. Voysey: Arts and Crafts Designer (V&A Publishing, 2016). He is a Trustee of the Decorative Arts Society and of the Emery Walker Trust.

Talk will be followed by festive drinks and nibbles
