May Morris

Art and Life


7 October 2017 to 28 January 2018

  • Open Wednesday to Sunday, 10am - 5pm; free

This landmark exhibition explores the life and work of May Morris, the younger daughter of William Morris and one of the most significant artists of the British Arts and Crafts movement. May Morris: Art & Life is the most comprehensive survey of May’s work to date, bringing together over 80 works from collections around the UK, many of which have never been on public display.

May Morris: Art & Life has been funded through Art Happens, the Art Fund's crowdfunding platform.

The exhibition will coincide with the publication by Thames & Hudson of May Morris: Arts & Crafts Designer, which is co-authored by curators at the William Morris Gallery and the V&A.
