Today we went to visit a very beautiful and amazing exhibition at Two Temple Place, which will showcase publicly-owned art from UK regional collections, features highlights from the William Morris Gallery collection, based in Walthamstow. Titled 'William Morris: Story, Memory, Myth', the show looks at how Morris told stories through pattern and poetry while examining the tales that were most important to him, such as the works of Geoffrey Chaucer, Norse saga, Arthurian legend and Greek myth. Displays include panels of the embroidered frieze 'The Romaunt of the Rose', exhibited together with editions of 'The Works of Geoffrey Chaucer', elaborately illustrated by Morris and Edward Burne-Jones and printed by Morris's private press. The theme of the exhibition echoes the late-Victorian interior of Two Temple Place, which is ornately decorated with scenes and characters from literature.
