CLEARANCE – VERY GOOD+ – ONE AVAILABLE
The Arts and Crafts movement flourished 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, quiet beauty and honesty of construction – artists and craft workshops produced textiles, furniture, ceramics and metalwork that elevated everyday objects to the level of the decorative arts. Arts & Crafts Style is a richly illustrated survey that examines the movement in Europe and North America with erudition and enthusiasm.
