William Morris was born in 1834 in Walthamstow, near London. He came from a wealthy home. His father worked at the stock exchange and left him a considerable legacy. His field of activity was not just painting. He also devoted himself to poetry, the arts and architecture and architecture.

His parents sent him to a boarding school and, inspired by English Anglo-Catholicism, he initially intended to become a servant of the church. However, he soon rejected this idea and instead went to the University of Oxford. He was very interested in medieval history and architecture, though he was not particularly impressed with the rest of the mediated knowledge or the way it was conveyed. In Oxford, he also made the acquaintance of Edward Burne Jones , later famous for his pre-Raphaelite painting. Morris and Burne-Jones should become lifelong friends. Through Burne-Jones Morris also came in contact with John Ruskin , in turn painter but also writer and art historian. In addition, Morris met regularly with the British poet and painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti , as well as the English architect Philip Webb , who created the Arts & Crafts architecture.

In the circle of this society, he also met his future wife Jane, whose graceful, dreamy appearance should often serve as a template for future portraits of Morris but also Dante Gabriel Rossetti. The latter was no less impressed by her beauty. Jane gave Morris two daughters. In 1856 Morris moved with the family to London. His apartment was spartan. Because there was no furniture, a local carpenter was instructed to make it. It was Rossetti's idea to decorate these pieces of furniture with their own designs. From this idea, which was supposed to represent only an original emergency solution, the company Morris & Co was founded in 1861, which focused on manual work.

Morris was a nature lover. Delicate flowers and birds adorned his colorful, sophisticated decors and sometimes masked his slightly choleric temperament. His company expanded even further and made carpets, tapestries and wallpapers. Morris devoted himself to this work until his death, but nevertheless found the time to study carpeting and pursue his passion for writing poetry and legends. He died in 1896. His grave is in Oxfordshire, England, near his museum Summer house Kelmscott Manor. © Meisterdrucke
