The Red House

William Morris' house in Bexleyheath. We visited a couple of weeks ago. The painting is from a photo of the house in an old book I have got. It is a black and white photo so made concentrating on the light and dark easier. My postcards from the visit. William and his wife Jane.
Jane and the oriole window where the ladies sat to do tapestry while the men played croquet on the lawn. Nice! It looks like eyes doesn't it? The guide told us that some of the windows were shaped liked Viking helmets and they looked like faces too.
