Dove and Rose Furnishing Fabric, designed by William Morris


While several of Tullie House's most high-profile Pre-Raphaelite works are going on loan to a prestigious Japanese touring exhibition there is a unique opportunity to view a number of other Pre-Raphaelites from the Tullie House collections.

Highlights include: a portrait of Mary Howard, George Howard’s eldest daughter. George Howard, Ninth Earl of Carlisle (1843-1911) was a talented artist and major Pre-Raphaelite patron. He and his wife Rosalind had eleven children. This portrait is one of eight drawings by George Howard purchased by the museum in 1993 with assistance from Arts Council England / V&A Purchase Grant Fund and the Friends of Tullie House. Also being shown is a large drawing ‘The Fountain of Youth’, by Edward Burne-Jones (1833-1898). It depicts the fountain of immortality possibly inspired by a classical myth, a theme Burne-Jones returned to several times. Visitors will also have a chance to view a piece of Dove and Rose furnishing fabric designed by William Morris (1834-1896) in 1879, which is one of 23 woven fabrics designed by Morris, this example hand-loom woven in wool and silk by Alexander Morton and Company, Carlisle.
