Jimmy Page owned Pre-Raphaelite tapestries on exhibit in Washington DC

Two huge tapestries by Edward Burne-Jones and William Morris, illustrating the Quest for the Holy Grail, are part of an exhibition of Pre-Raphaelite art at the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC. The two tapestries are the property of Jimmy Page, whose interest in the art, design and architecture of that era is well known. A beautiful exhibition well worth the visit for anyone in the area.

There were six tapestries depicting the Quest for the Holy Grail, which were commissioned from Morris & Co. They were was designed by both William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones in 1890 for the Australian mining engineer William Knox D'Arcy for the dining-room of his house, Stanmore Hall in Middlesex, England.
