Anarchy & Beauty: William Morris and His Legacy, 1860 – 1960

‘Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.’
William Morris lecture, ‘The Beauty of Life’, 1880

William Morris (1834–96) regarded beauty as a basic human birthright. In this fascinating book, which accompanies the exhibition, Morris’s biographer Fiona MacCarthy looks at how his highly original and generous vision of a new form of society in which art could flourish has reverberated through the decades.
