Description

A talented writer, designer, and administrator, William Morris (British, 18341896) was one of the most influential figures of the British Victorian era. The Museum's Blackthorne tie echoes the influence of nature in Morriss wallpapers and fabrics. Characteristically, his designs were densely patterned and often based on an array of flowers, leaves, and fruits. Our William Morris tie adapts the motif from Blackthornea block-printed wallpaper from 1892 in the Museums collection.

Silk. Imported. 3 5/8''W.

Art History

One of the most influential designers of Victorian England, William Morris (British, 18341896) was fascinated and inspired by the legends of King Arthur, the writings of Chaucer, and all things medieval. He even modeled the structure of his creative enterprises after the medieval guild system. One of his missions was to break the barrier between fine and decorative arts, a goal he accomplished by turning his design talents to everything from murals and stained glass to furniture, wallpaper, and textiles. His work helped launch the Arts and Crafts movement in England and paved the way for the era of modern design.
