William Morris and the Arts & Crafts movement in Great Britain

William Morris and the Arts & Crafts movement in Great Britain

Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya. From February 22 to May 20, 2018

The Arts and Crafts movement, linked to design and decorative arts, was born in Great Britain around 1880 and it was developed until the First World War.  It spread rapidly throughout America and Europe until reaching Japan.  Its maximum ideologist was the artist and writer William Morris (1834-1896) and took its name from the Arts and Crafts Exhibition Society, founded in London in 1887. The exhibition would be the first by Morris and the Arts & Crafts to be held in Spain and will present the masterpieces from this artistic movement. It will come to Barcelona after its exhibition in Madrid, from October 6 2017 to January 21 2018, at the Fundación Juan March.
