Acanthus (William Morris)

2042-3 Mulberry

Acanthus was the first wallpaper in a group of large-scale heavily patterned and deep coloured papers. These designs were more sophisticated than the earlier style of small-scale patterned papers. The stylised scrolling acanthus leaves were some of Morris’s favourite motifs.
