Painted wood

" Painted wood in an eccentrically Gothic form, with cupboards, drawers, a calendar and a clock, the whole surmounted with a gabled roof. Prov W. G. Saunders." [William Morris and Company. p. 19].

The Fine Art Society, London, has most generously given its permission to use information, images, and text from its catalogues in the Victorian Web, and this generosity has led to the creation of hundreds and hundreds of the site's most valuable documents on painting, drawing, sculpture, furniture, textiles, ceramics, glass, metalwork, and the people who created them. The copyright on text and images from their catalogues remains, of course, with the Fine Art Society. [GPL]
