Collection Description: This new collection of William Morris design celebrates the master apprentice John Henry Dearle. In the late 1870s the 18-year-old art student was hired as a showroom assistant. Twenty years later he was Head Designer putting his own stamp on the Morris style. The prints in The Morris Apprentice reflect Dearle’s new directions. He added color and line from art nouveau in designs like “Helena” and “Foliage.” Pattern repeat took on a Persian formality in “Eden.” Dearle became Art Director in 1896 after Morris’s death, guiding the firm into the Twentieth Century.
