As a central figure in the turn-of-the-century Arts and Crafts movement, William Morris (1834-1896) influenced interior design in Great Britain and around the world. On this regularly updated blog from the William Morris Society, design enthusiasts can read reflections on Morris's life and work from contemporary Morris scholars and learn about conferences and other events that may be of interest. For example, a blog post published on December 20, 2017, authored by Wake Forest University art professor Morna O'Neill, discusses a recent conference on the work of painter Lawrence Alma-Tadema and discusses the relationship between the two men and their work. In another recent post, authored by a curator at the Cleveland Museum of Art, describes the museum's new William Morris exhibit. Individual blog posts are accompanied by numerous related images, offering visitors a chance to learn more about Morris's work and influence.
