William De Morgan in burgundy

It has been said that no William Morris interior would be complete without the ceramics of his friend William De Morgan.


One of the largest private collections of Pre-Raphaelite art in the world is held by Andrew Lloyd Webber.  In 2003, the Royal Academy of Arts, London, mounted an exhibition of his collection which included many items from the Decorative and Applied Arts (I'm not sure why I capitalized those words).  The pics above are taken from a beautiful book that was published to accompany the exhibit "Pre-Raphaelite and Other Masters - The Andrew Lloyd Webber Collection".
