The Art of Wallpaper exhibition – The William Morris Society

Until 11 August

A new exhibition at The William Morris Society in Hammersmith explores the visually rich art of wallpaper.

On loan from Sanderson Design Group, The Art of Wallpaper: Morris & Co. in Context runs until 11 August. The exhibition features a range of beautiful wallpapers from Sanderson’s own archive, which are rarely on public display, to chart the development of wallpaper design in the 19 century and its remaining legacy today.

Early 19 century French wallpapers are contextualised with Islamic inspired designs of the reform movement prompting Morris’s own response and contribution to interior design trends of the time.

Originally curated by Mary Schoeser for Dovecot Studios in Edinburgh, this crowd pleasing, visually rich exhibition looks at the work of William Morris in a new light, placing his wallpaper designs within the context of the radical changes in taste witnessed during the Victorian era.

Morris’s distinctive patterning is set against a backdrop of the fanciful, naturalistic patterns that typified the fashionable English and French papers of his youth.

When

Open Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday. Until 11 August 2024,  2 – 5pm
