Forest Collection - Forest Collection (Four Cushions) - Tapestry And Needlepoint

Forest Collection

Regular price
$350.00 AUD
$269.00 AUD

This remarkable William Morris tapestry was originally designed for his patron Alexander Ionides. Completed in 1887, it measured 15ft (4.5m) wide. Morris delegated the drawing of the animals to the architect Philip Webb and the foreground millefleurs to his eventual successor Henry Dearle. The result is a tribute to their lifelong friendship and various talents.

It is interesting to compare the Greenery tapestry designed later entirely by Henry Dearle. The original Forest is owned by the Victoria & Albert Museum.
