About

Leicester-born Ernest Gimson was one of the major designers of the late 19th/early 20th centuries. He worked in London and the Cotswolds until his death in 1919 but his reputation extended to Germany, Scandinavia and the USA. His work — furniture, metalwork, embroidery, plasterwork and architecture — represents the William Morris-inspired Arts & Crafts Movement at its most pure and has continued to inspire designer-makers worldwide up to the present day.
