Exeter lends Morris books to Modern Art Oxford
Several books that once belonged to artist William Morris have been loaned to Modern Art Oxford by Exeter College library for an exhibition comparing the work of Morris and Andy Warhol.
The exhibition is called “Love is enough: William Morris and Andy Warhol” and lasts until 8 March 2015. Curated by Turner prize-winner Jeremy Deller, the exhibition draws many surprising parallels between the work of Morris and Warhol. There are very interesting works by both artists on loan from public and private collections in the USA and the UK.
Exeter College, where William Morris was an undergraduate, has loaned three books to the exhibition: William Morris’s own copy of the great Kelmscott Chaucer (1896), and two other Kelmscott Press books: the History of Godefrey of Boloyne and the conquest of Jerusalem (1893) and Sidonia the Sorceress (1893).
