Arts & Crafts Liberty textile panel attributed to Charles Voysey. Silk, wool and cotton on linen-backed stretchers

English, circa 1900

This wonderful and rare Arts & Crafts textile panel in jacquard woven silk, wool and cotton, depicts stylised tulips, flowers and leaves in soft, earthy tones. Hand-woven by Alexander Morton & Co circa. 1900, the design is attributed to Charles Voysey.

C.F.A Voysey (1857-1941) was a renowned architect, furniture and textile designer whose iconic designs were heavily influenced by the work of William Morris, the Arts & Crafts movement and Art Nouveau. Voysey felt that "simplicity in decoration is one of the essential qualities without which no true richness is possible" and he often worked in a limited colour palette, as showcased in this panel.
