William Morris at the MNAC

Traductor de Google:

The artist William Morris (1834-1896) was the main ideologist behind the Arts and Crafts movement which emerged in Great Britain around 1880 and was linked to design and the decorative arts. The Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (MNAC) is offering 300 pieces from this art movement, with works from major British museums forming the exhibition ‘William Morris and the Arts & Crafts movement in Great Britain’.

The exhibition explores the various creative facets of Morris, who was a designer, artisan, businessman, poet, essayist and social activist, as well as one of the main figures of the movement.

The pieces on display include jewels, textiles, furniture, painted papers, ceramics glass and metalwork. Highlights include a huge tapestry by Morris and company about the legend of the Holy Grail, the exquisite wardrobe of Ernest Gimson, painted with images of rural life in the Cotswolds, and the magnificent embroidered panels by Margaret MacDonald.
