William James Neatby - a master of fin de siecle art and design in Britain Dr Scott Anderson Monday 16 March 2020

One of the best known tile interiors in Britain is the ceramic extravanganza by W.J.Neatby in the meat hall in Harrods department store in London.  His designs for it were commissioned by Doulton and Co. of Lambeth.  He started as a ceramic artist in Leeds and became head of Doulton's archtectural ceramics department and also a book illustrator and wallpaper designer.  His Art Nouveau style is still a visual treat.
