2014. A beautiful calligraphic manuscript of William Morris’s poem “Love Fulfilled.” Maryanne Grebenstein is a professional calligrapher who studied under many other notable calligraphers. She teaches calligraphy and manuscript gilding at the Massachusetts College of Art (Boston), the North Bennet Street School (Boston), and the Abbey Studio in Hingham, MA. This lovely lyric was published in Morris’s last book of poetry, Poems by the Way, in 1892. A contemporary critic described this late work as still marked by a pervading intensity of human feeling found in his early poetry. The title and decorated capitals are 23 Karat gold leaf. Thirty-five lines with the calligrapher’s signature in pencil below the border. The text is in Moon Palace sumi ink and the color is in Winsor & Newton gouache on Crane’s 100% cotton stock paper. Archivally matted. Measures 17 x 22 inches including mat. Fine.
