Love, marriage & wallpaper: the artistic lives of Jane and William Morris

Ep. 1456

Victorian designer William Morris is remembered for his distinctive nature-inspired designs, many of which still grace wallpapers and furniture fabrics today. Less well-known is his wife, Jane – though she had significant artistic influence as a collaborator and artist in her own right. Susanne Fagence Cooper speaks to Elinor Evans about her new joint biography which explores the couple’s creative partnership.
