The times in which Morris lived appear from this distance as wildly romantic: Paris in the 1920s with Man Ray & Hemingway, the London of Evelyn Waugh’s Bright Young Things, wild parties of course, and then a gradual withdrawal to the country to paint, garden and found the East Anglian School of Painting & Drawing, whose famous students included Lucian Freud and Maggi Hambling. And then more, much more!
This delicious, jewel of a show highlights his wonderfully sensuous flower paintings, whilst across the river at Philip Mould, a second exhibition explores his travels and plant hunting.
A delightful surprise!
