I have just spotted these two profiles for William Morris and his wife Janey Burden. They were both extremely famous in their homeland and much has been written about them both in print and on line. Here are their wkipedia entries for starters; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Morris ; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jane_Morris . In short he was an artist, designer and politician whilst she has been described as the first 'super model' and muse to the artist Rossetti. George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion and later My Fair Lady were based on her life.
