Beth Russell Greenery

Henry Dearle, Morris' first weaving apprentice, became a talented designer in his own right and on William Morris' death in 1896 he took over Morris & Co. So close was he to Morris in style that many of his designs for wallpapers and fabrics have been mistaken for Morris' own.

However, it was in tapestry that he revealed his greatest talent and here his work is quite distinctive. Greenery is one of his finest works and it is interesting to compare it with Morris' Forest.

The original Greenery tapestry, completed in 1892, is now on loan to the National Trust of Scotland and is hung at Crathes Castle, Banchory. A second weaving was completed in 1915 and is in the Metropolitan Museum, New York.

Beth Russell has adapted the very large weaving into needlepoint and divided it into parts, which she has named for convenience. Each of these would make a hansome firescreen or wall hanging. Sewn together the entire scene is breathtaking.
