What We Do

The De Morgan Foundation's collection of artwork and associated materials was formed on the death of Mrs Stirling at her bequest. The organisation was formally registered as Charity No. 310004  in 1970. The aims of the charity are as follows:

  • safeguarding and maintaining the collection and its identity for the future

  • enabling public access to the works of William and Evelyn De Morgan

  • providing interpretation of the collection at many different levels

  • providing a stimulating environment for interaction with the collection

  • encouraging research of the collection and archive in order to enhance knowledge

  • promoting appreciation of the collection and the Arts and Crafts Movement as a whole through education, temporary exhibitions, the events programme, the website and other means.
