About the artist

John Henry Dearle

John Henry Dearle was trained as a tapestry weaver by William Morris and by 1890 had become Morris & Company's chief textile designer. Some of the firm's most attractive woven textiles were produced under his direction. He was a skilled draughtsman and his naturalistic flowers were very popular at the beginning of the 20th century.
