About the Artist
Despite the rise of industrial manufacturing, William Morris believed in craftsmanship. Along with other leading painters, Morris founded what would become Morris & Company, producing decorative textiles and furnishings in a way that intimately linked artist and craftsman and returned to less mechanized methods of production. His works are now considered exemplary of the Arts and Crafts movement and important to the development of Art Nouveau.
