Departure From Camelot

Outside the walls of Camelot, the legendary court of King Arthur, the mounted Knights prepare to depart on their mission, whilst the Ladies hand them their armour.

This tapestry was designed by Edward Burne-Jones, J. H. Dearle and William Morris and was woven by Morris & Company in their studio at Merton Abbey, Surrey, around 1895. The original tapestry was commissioned by William Knox DArcy to decorate his house, Stanmore hall in Middlesex.
