Morris & Warhol

The latest issue of Through Our Hands magazine has an interesting review of an exhibit at the Birmingham Museum and Art gallery, Love Is Enough. Artist Jeremy Deller, a Turner Prize winner, has put together an unlikely combo, William Morris and Andy Warhol.

I was unaware that Warhol did tapestries (did everyone else know that?), you can see the tapestry version of his famous Monroe here.

 Too bad it’s so far away, I would love to see the Holy Grail Tapestries in person!

Do check out the issue, it’s free and has quite a few articles worth reading!

  1. Hello Lyn, thank you very much for recommending this magazine, it is fantastic! If you ever find yourself in London (UK) go and have a look at the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A), their medieval tapestries are amazing especially the Devonshire Tapestries.
    Thanks again.
