Treasures of the American Arts and Crafts Movement 1890-1920

ISBN: 9780500284087

Based on the ideals of William Morris and his circle, the Arts and Crafts Movement flourished vigorously when transplanted to American soil at the turn of the century. With Gustave Stickley as its moving spirit, the 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: not only was it a philosophy of life, promoting physical and moral well-being, but it also fostered the beginnings of twentieth-century design. Compiled by connoisseurs of Arts and Crafts, and with a text by Alastair Duncan, this book is both the most comprehensive and authoritative treatment of the movement available and a sumptuous photographic collection of Arts and Crafts masterpieces. Pictured here in more than 130 colour images are stained glass, furniture, silver and metalwork, ceramics, textiles, lighting and more, all specially photographed for this volume. The principles of Arts and Crafts are no less cogent today than they were a hundred years ago, and all those seeking to create a meaningful home environment will find here an eloquent exposition of ideas and an indispensable variety of forms.
