An Earthly Paradise: William Morris & The Thames
01 Feb 2019 – 14 Jul 2019
The River and Rowing Museum
Henley-on-Thames, United Kingdom
The impetus for the museum largely came from Davis Lunn Rockliffe, formerly Executive Secretary of the Amateur Rowing Association. The building was designed by the modernist architect Sir David Chipperfield and has won awards for the building itself, including the Royal Fine Art Commission Building of the Year award in 1999. It was also UK National Heritage Museum of the Year in 1999. It was officially opened in November 1998 by Queen Elizabeth II.
