William Morris's Strawberry Thief

Detailed Image
William Morris's Strawberry Thief 
This tapestry "William Morris's Strawberry Thief" is based on one of the most loved works of William Morris. Morris found thrushes stealing fruit from his garden of his country home in Oxfordshire which was the inspiration behind this piece. The attention to detail in this piece is exquisite and one can see the thrushes among green and blue acanthus leaves, ripe strawberries and beige flowers. The acanthus leaves are further echoed on the border with exquisitely full forms of the acanthus leaves in browns and beiges, which is a signature of William Morris tapestry works. The rich blue of the central section is echoed by the more subtle blues in the border itself, to create a cohesive a rich and vibrant color palette. This design was produced by Morris with a painstaking indigo discharge technique where the indigo dyes created a blue indigo background before the printing of other colors. This tapestry "William Morris's Strawberry Thief" is backed with a lining and has a tunnel for easy hanging.

Ordered a tapestry to very short timescales just before Christmas... not expecting to receive before the New Year. Extremely surprised when it arrived just before Christmas during all the really snowy weather

...& even more surprised at the high quality of the tapestry. I am now about to place an order for another tapestry for my daughter's 18th birthday.

Highly recommended!

David, England
