Alan Crawford shares his views of May Morris' life and work, to accompany the exhibition.

Alan Crawford is a historian of the decorative arts and architecture, notably on the Arts and Crafts movement, an area of study on which he has published extensively including a seminal study C.R. Ashbee: Architect, Designer and Romantic Socialist (Yale University Press, 1985), inspired and supported by Nikolaus Pevsner whom Alan met while a student at Oxford. Alan’s extensive knowledge and interest in the figures of the movement led to his contributing several entries for the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography (2004). He is a former chairman of the Victorian Society, and was an early member of the Design History Society.
