This week we have Cedric Morris (1889-1982), artist and plantsman. The good news is that Benton End, the house and gardens in Suffolk which was his home with his partner Arthur Lett-Haines from 1939, is now in the care of the Garden Museum which is preparing to reopen it. Here they established the East Anglian School of Painting and Drawing and attracted a wide range of influential artists, writers, musicians and gardeners. This is Morris' glorious 'Flowers' (1940, Newport Museum and Gallery).
