William Morris: The Art of Life

and the Life of Art

by Dr Antony Buxton

The next meeting of the Society will take place

promptly at 11.00

on Monday, 20 May

at the Ellendune Centre, Wroughton  

Coffee will be served from 10 00

Guests are always welcome

 

The lecture: William Morris: The Art of Life and the Life of Art:

The polymath William Morris 

is rightly celebrated as a designer, craftsman and artist,

who, as a young man

decided to dedicate his artistic life to counter the ugly industrial world

he saw developing around him.

In addition to his art he was a deeply reflective man,

who, through his poetry and his writings, expressed

passionate views on an improved quality of life

which should be available to all.

He was one of the earliest pupils at Marlborough College

- he was there during the school rebellion. 

He is rated by many as the most influential man of Victorian England.

The lecturer:  Dr Antony Buxton lectures on the history of art,

architecture and design, and material and domestic culture

for the Department for Continuing Education, University of Oxford

and other British and American institutions of higher education.

Prior to academic teaching he was for many years a

furniture designer-maker and period furniture conservator.
