Visit to the exhibition  Anarchy & Beauty: William Morris and his Legacy 1860-1960 at the National Portrait Gallery

This is the first exhibition devoted to William Morris and his influence in the twentieth century, focusing on his politics, thought and design. His ideal of art for all had far-reaching consequences on twentieth-century life, the Garden City movement and pioneering designers from Ambrose Heal to Terence Conran.  It will bring together an extraordinary range of objects from portraits, furniture and books to banners, textiles and jewellery by radical artists and craftsmen from the time of the Pre-Raphaelites to the Festival of Britain and beyond.
