About this title:
Synopsis:
Red House occupies a singular place in British architectural history—it was the first and only house that was built for designer William Morris, and it was the first independent architectural commission for his friend, Philip Webb. The challenge of furnishing the house inspired Morris and his Pre-Raphaelite friends to found the design firm of Morris & Co., which was the flagship for what was to become the Arts & Crafts movement. Because of its illustrious first owner, Red House was never forgotten, and a succession of tenants kept Morris’ spirit alive in the house; in 2003, Red House was acquired for the National Trust. This handsome volume provides both the story of Red House and a "virtual tour" that enables the reader to see how this splendid house looked and functioned when it was inhabited by the celebrated designer.

Book Description: PAVILION BOOKS, United Kingdom, 2006. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 260 x 250 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. Red House occupies an extraordinary place in British architectural history. It was the first and only house that William Morris ever built. It was the first independent architectural commission from his friend, Philip Webb. The challenge of furnishing the house inspired Morris to found the design firm of Morris Co. It had a great influence on the Arts Crafts Movement. But it is also a house that captured William Morris s heart. He was only twenty-five when, in 1858 he decided to buy the site at Bexleyheath, just outside London, but in a rural Kentish setting. He had recently married Jane Burden, daughter of an Oxford ostler, whose particular beauty became inspiration for so much pre-Raphaelite art. With his young wife and his wealth he planned to produce a vision of earthly paradise at Red House. Rosetti described it as more a poem than a house , Morris called it our place of art , and when he was obliged to give it up for financial reasons in 1865, he resolved never to return. His biographer recorded that he could never set eyes on it again, confessing that the sight of it would be more than he could bear . Red House was saved from an uncertain future in January 2003 by the National Trust, and has already opened its doors. Visitors will be able to see some of the original furnishings but many are now at Kelmscott Manor, the William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow, the Victoria Albert Museum and other locations. This book, however, will provide both the story of Red House and a virtual tour to enable the reader to see how the house looked and functioned when William Morris, his family and friends lived there. Jan Marsh is a biographer specialising in artists and writers. She has researched and written extensively on the Pre-Raphaelite circle, and also been guest curator for exhibitions. She is a Trustee of the William Morris gallery, Walthamstow; a fellow of the Royal Historical Society; and Visiting Professor at the Graduate Research Centre, University of Sussex. She held a Leverhulme Fellowship at the National Portrait Gallery, 2002-3. Recent publications include scholarly essays on Ruskin s Sesame and Lilies; May Morris and Marie Spartali Stillman.
