Willow Bough (William Morris)

2045-2 Marine

Morris was inspired by wild flowers and trees which he had seen on country walks. Morris also found ideas for his designs in the simple woodcut illustrations in 16th-century herbals. The willow was one of Morris’s favourite motifs and he used it in several of his designs.
