2017 will mark the 150th anniversary of the artist Frank Brangwyn RA (1867-1956). ‘Sheer Pleasure – Frank Brangwyn and the Art of Japan’ examines his love of Japanese art and his collaborative relationships with Japanese artists and patrons. Brangwyn donated his collection of Japanese prints and paintings to the Gallery. They have rarely been displayed and the exhibition includes highlights, such as woodblock prints by Utagawa Hiroshige and Katsushika Hokusai and a carefully restored decorative screen. Find out more about the ‘Sheer Pleasure’ exhibition from the William Morris Gallery’s website.
