About

Explore the wide-ranging genius of designer William Morris at the National Portrait Gallery, with Anarchy and Beauty: William Morris and His Legacy 1860-1960.

An incredibly influential figure in late 19th and early 20th-century life, Morris was a political man who helped shape the arts, helping to bring the culture of art and design to the masses.

A talented craftsman and designer in his own right, he made a key contribution across many disciplines, including textile and wallpaper design, fantasy fiction, medievalism and even socialism.

This extensive look at his work sees a number or rare and important cultural treasures brought together for the first time, including portraits, banners, books, jewellery and furniture. Highlights include Morris' Socialist Diary, Edward Burne Jones' elaborate hand-painted Prioress's Tale wardrobe and Eric Gill's erotic garden roller Adam and Eve.

An extraordinary figure in the history of art and design, this is a chance to discover more about the great man's mind, through intimate and invaluable items from his own life.
