The Arts and Crafts movement in Britain, by Ayla Lepine
Talk | Royal Over-Seas League
Monday 4 April 2016 - 15:00 until 16:00
The Spring season's four lectures look at design and decorative-arts movements from the end of the 19th century until the 1940s.
The Arts and Crafts movement was one of the most influential and enduring in British art, architecture and design. This lecture explores key organisations and figures including WR Lethaby and Philip Webb. It also explores themes of religion, urban life and brotherhood. Blending famous and less well-known examples of art and architecture from houses and churches to furnishings and jewellery, this lecture sheds new light on the much-loved yet often misunderstood period.
