More Description

The American Arts and Crafts Movement is one of the most exciting and inspiring chapters in the history of the decorative arts. Rooted in the English movement of the same name, it flourished when transplanted to American soil at the turn of the century. With Gustav Stickley as its moving spirit, the Arts and Crafts Movement eventually included such notable designers, architects, and firms as Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Comfort Tiffany, Adelaide Alsop Robineau, Greene and Greene, the Rookwood pottery, Elbert Hubbard's Roycroft Shops, and Louis Sullivan. Together they forged a new, forward-looking aesthetic that was much more than a particular style: it was a philosophy of life, promoting physical and moral well-being. The American Arts and Crafts Movement was responsible for sweeping changes in attitudes toward the decorative arts, and it fostered the beginnings of twentieth-century design. This book is both a comprehensive and authoritative treatment of the movement and a sumptuous photographic collection of Arts and Crafts masterpieces. Pictured here in more than 130 color photographs are stained glass, furniture, silver and metalwork, ceramics, textiles, lighting, and more.
