Spanning the Atlantic: The Arts and Crafts Movement - Cheekwood
x icon Close

The Arts & Crafts movement was an international trend in the decorative arts that first developed in the British Isles during the 19th century before its influence made its way across the Atlantic to America. The movement stood for traditional craftsmanship, often incorporating medieval, romantic, or folk styles of decoration. Leading examples of works by Charles F. A. Voysey, William Morris, and Charles Rennie Mackintosh, to name a few, will be included in this two-part exhibition with the American portion on display in the spring of 2023.
