Cloth binding for ‘Albert Moore’

Joseph William Gleeson White


Cloth binding with colour-stamped design

16 x 10 inches

An example of Gleeson White's control of the conventions of Arts and Crafts design, this intricate composition recalls the style of William Morris while also suggesting the ceramic designs of William de Morgan. Its studied elegance embodies Moore's pictorial values as one of the prime Aesthetic painters.
