Saint Paul Directing the Burning of the Heathen Books from the Life of Saint Paul tapestry series. Designed by Pieter Coecke van Aelst, ca. 1529 or 1535. Tapestry probably woven under the direction of Jan van der Vyst, Brussels, probably before 1546.
In 1861 Morris founded Morris, Marshall, Faulkner and Company along with friends Peter Paul Marshall and Charles Faulkner and subsequently begun the Arts and Craft Movement. Together with Edward Burne-Jones and fellow artists Ford Maddox Brown and Dante Gabriel Rosetti, the group produced some of the most creative tapestries and wall hangings Britain had seen.
