About: During the 1870s Spartali Stillman began a friendship with Jane Morris and her husband, Arts and Crafts pioneer William. Over the ensuing years the two women became close, often spending time together at Kelmscott Manor, the Cotswold stone farmhouse that was the Morris family’s beloved country residence. These visits are recorded in Marie’s paintings of the house, created from all viewpoints, and leaving a vital visual record of the building and garden.
