William Morris (1834 - 1896) was a British textile designer who was associated with the British Arts and Crafts movement. He's often seen as one of the figureheads who revived textile arts and how they were produced, and his works are still loved to this day.
A special exhibition taking place at the Nara Prefectural Museum of Art will explore Morris' life as a designer, with around 80 examples of his work on display. There will also be photographs and video footage of English landscapes which were often a source of his artistic inspiration.
Adult admission to the event is priced at 1200 yen, and no advance reservations are required.
The Nara Prefectural Museum of Art is located around five minutes on foot from Exit 1 of the Kintetsu Nara Station.
For those planning to drive to the museum, do note that there is no dedicated parking lot. There are various paid lots in the surrounding streets to choose from.
