Arts and Crafts Style.


Anscombe, Isabelle.

Pap. London, 1996

Book ID: 20470

The Arts and Crafts movement flowered in the 1870s and 80s as a reaction to the decorative excesses of the mid-nineteenth century. At its heart was a search for a return to simplicity and honesty of construction. Arts & Crafts Style is a richly illustrated survey of this middle-class revolution in aesthetic taste, which draws together its many different strands and looks in particular at how the style was interpreted throughout Europe and America.
