Exhibition William Morris and the Arts & Crafts in Great Britain at the MNAC in Barcelona – from 22 February to 20 May 2018

The Arts and Crafts movement, linked to design and decorative arts, was born in Great Britain around 1880 and was developed until the First World War. It spread quickly across America and Europe to Japan. His greatest ideologist was the artist and writer William Morris (1834-1896) and took his name from the Arts and Crafts Exhibition Society, founded in London in 1887.

The exhibition will present masterpieces of this artistic movement.
