William Morris was a key figure in the development of domestic garden design, helping to popularise the Arts and Crafts garden among the artistic middle class in England and the US. His gardens at Red House and then Kelmscott Manor supplied endless inspiration to Morris, his family and friends.

The Enchanted Garden explores how Morris's contemporaries and subsequent generations of artists - from the Pre-Raphaelites to the Bloomsbury Group - have responded to the allure of garden spaces, using them as stages for the magical, menacing and romantic.

Featured artists include Claude Monet, Lucian Pissarro, Edward Burne-Jones, Stanley Spencer, Beatrix Potter, Cicely Mary Barker, Roger Fry and Vanessa Bell. Highlights from the William Morris Gallery’s own collection will be shown alongside loans from across the UK, including the National Gallery, Ashmolean Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, Cartwright Hall, Arts Council Collection, Leeds Museum & Art Galleries and the Laing Art Gallery.

The exhibition is organised by the Laing Art Gallery in association with the William Morris Gallery.
