I visited this exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery a couple of weeks ago. Whilst I don’t know a lot about Morris I do like the work I’ve seen so I was really looking forward to seeing something more and learning about him. However, I was a bit disappointed really. Firstly it was quite a small exhibition, and for £12 I did expect a bit more. Secondly, the exhibition was much more about his influence in political and artistic circles rather than being about him.
Don’t get me wrong, it was good, for what it was, but it wasn’t really what I had expected or envisaged. A bit of a shame really.
