A Marriage of Arts & Crafts: Evelyn & William De Morgan

This visually stunning exhibition makes its American debut.

Arts and Crafts pottery maker William De Morgan (1839-1917) and Pre-Raphaelite painter Evelyn De Morgan (1855-1919) lived in harmony as married artists in Victorian England. A power couple, they encouraged one another’s creative pursuits and engaged in the social issues of their day. William De Morgan created brilliantly colored tiles, pots, and plates with distinctive, shimmering lustre-ware surfaces. Evelyn De Morgan took inspiration from Botticelli to create richly symbolic paintings of modern subjects. This visually stunning exhibition makes its American debut at the Delaware Art Museum.
