William Morris (1834-1896) was a radical thinker whos democratic vision for society and art has continued to influence designers, artists and writers to this day, long afterhis death. He was a gifted poet, architect, painter, writer and textile designer, who also founded the Kelmscott Press, the most famous of the Arts and Crafts private presses. Drawing on Morris's own extensive writings, and illustrated with vivid images of the man himself, as well as his iconic textiles and wallpapers, the volume explores his passionately held view that fine, functional design should be accessible to all. Alongside his own words are the reflections of Morris's friends, family and those who later found inspiration in his life and work, among them C.R. Ashbee, Edward Burne-Jones, Terence Conran, George Eliot, Eric Gill, Aldous Huxley, George Bernard Shaw and oscar Wilde, who together provide some fascinating insights into the personality and significance of William Morris in his life-long attempt to transform the world with beuty.

Meticulously woven by hand with wool, silk, and gilt-metal thread, the tapestry collection of the Sun King, Louis XIV of France, represents the highest achievements of the art form. Intended to enhance the king’s reputation by visualizing his manifest glory and to promote the kingdom’s nascent mercantile economy, the royal collection of tapestries included antique and contemporary sets that followed the designs of the greatest artists of the Renaissance and Baroque periods, including Raphael, Giulio Romano, Rubens, Vouet, and Le Brun. Ranging in date from about 1540 to 1715 and coming from weaving workshops across northern Europe, these remarkable works portray scenes from the bible, history, and mythology. As treasured textiles, the works were traditionally displayed in the royal palaces when the court was in residence and in public on special occasions and feast days. They are still little known, even in France, as they are mostly reserved for the decoration of elite state residences and ministerial offices.
This catalogue accompanies an exhibition of fourteen marvelous examples of the former royal collection that will be displayed exclusively at the J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Center. Lavishly illustrated, the volume presents for the first time in English the latest scholarship of the foremost authorities working in the field.

The study is the first to assess in detail the impact of the classical Greek historians on the development of humanist methods of historical writing. The author constantly monitors Bruni's position within the shifting hierarchies of power in Florence, drawing connections between his various historical works and the political uses they were meant to serve.
