Art Nouveau: William Morris

This painting called "The Strawberry Thief (Flower and Bird Pattern), 1884" was made by William Morris. Morris is known for creating intricate designs within wallpapers, fabrics, and textile-related art. He was involved in an association called "fine art workmen"  that received projects for decorating stained-glass windows and ceilings inside new churches. Not only is this painting very detailed, but the mirrored birds and strawberries are interesting to look at. I like how Morris incorporated elements of nature to generate an symmetrical pattern.
