The Holy Grail Tapestries on view again! Run don't walk to see them...

Birmingham Museums, UK, will have The Holy Grail Tapestries on display again as part of the Love is Enough: William Morris and Andy Warhol exhibit.  They have been my favorite tapestries ever since I discovered the paintings of Sir Edward Burne-Jones and William Morris. They are truly beautiful.

Quest for the Holy Grail Tapestries - Panel 1 -  Knights of the Round Table Summoned to the Quest by the Strange Damsel,
By Sir Edward Burne-Jones, William Morris, John Henry Dearle, 1898 – 1899

 Quest for the Holy Grail Tapestries -  Panel 2 - The Arming and Departure of the Knights, By Sir Edward Burne-Jones,  William Morris, John Henry Dearle, 1895 – 1896 

 Quest for the Holy Grail Tapestries - Panel 3 -  The Failure of Sir Gawaine; Sir Gawaine and Sir Uwaine at the Ruined Chapel,  By Sir Edward Burne-Jones, William Morris, John Henry Dearle, 1895 – 1896

Hi Kevin,

The Lady and the Unicorn is a beautiful tapestry. I think its in France.
You must see The Unicorn Tapestries at The Cloisters Museum here in
NYC if you ever make it here we can visit! I think you'd really like them.

Thanks so much for commenting!

Happy Writing!
