William Morris once said: “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful”. In this tour we will share the beauty of fabulous Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery objects that are both beautiful and useful, including ones made by Morris’ Firm. As a counter balance we will also look at objects that assert the Aesthetes’ belief in beauty for beauty’s sake. Tour delivered by guide Christine.
