William Morris's name and reputation are indissolubly linked to wallpaper design, but there is a tendency to over-estimate the influence he had in this field, at least in his own lifetime. In fact, despite his much repeated belief in 'art for all', his wallpapers, like most of the products of Morris & Co., were hand-made and expensive, and consequently had a relatively limited take-up.

Arlington Row Cottages, Bibury, Cotswold, England - The Arlington Row cottages were built in 1380 as a monastic wool store. This was converted into a row of weavers' cottages in the 17th century. The cloth produced there was sent to Arlington Mill on the other side of Rack Isle. The cloth was then hung on wooden timber frames on Rack Isle after being degreased at Arlington Mill.

William Morris Hunt.The horses of Anahita, 1848/50 modeled(1882/1910 cast)//////////Sculpture/////I really like this relief scultpure because of how much the images are projecting out at you. The fact that they are projecting out at you emphasizes that there is a struggle going on or some kind of chaos.
