De Morgan Centre

The De Morgan Centre in Wandsworth, London, has re-opened after a major refurbishment (title link). The De Morgan Foundation owns over 1000 ceramics and 500 paintings and drawings by the De Morgans, husband and wife. William De Morgan was a leading light in the Arts and Crafts Movement. His wife, Evelyn De Morgan, was the famous Pre-Raphaelite artist who was accepted into the Brotherhood. Shown is her allegorical painting Night and Sleep (1879). The Wandsworth Museum opened last year in the same building as the De Morgan Centre. Fingers crossed its security is now up to scratch (CLICK).
