Burlington Magazine editor Michael Hall explores Morris's friendship with a leading Gothic revival architect.

As is well known, when William Morris embarked on his short-lived career as an architect in the office of G.E. Street in 1856 he formed a life-long friendship with Street’s assistant Philip Webb. Less well remembered is that fact that at the same time he encountered Street’s old friend G.F. Bodley, yet in the 1860s Morris’s professional and creative relationship with Bodley was scarcely less important than that with Webb. For a decade from 1861 Bodley was a leading patron of the newly founded Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co. This resulted in major schemes of stained glass and painted decoration, most famously at All Saints, Selsley, Gloucestershire; St Martin, Scarborough; St Michael, Brighton; and the chapel of Jesus College, Cambridge. Michael Hall discusses the results of this fruitful collaboration and explains why it came to an abrupt end in the early 1870s.

Michael Hall was Chair of the Society’s Events Committee for twenty years and is the host of this present lecture series. He was also co-founder of the Society’s ‘Studies in Victorian Architecture and Design’, to which many of the series lecturers have contributed. He is the editor of ‘The Burlington Magazine’ and the author of the award-winning book, ‘George Frederick Bodley and the Later Gothic Revival in Britain and America’, published in 2014.
