CLEARANCE – VERY GOOD+ CONDITION – ONE AVAILABLE
The talents of a brilliant assembly of designers – of pewterware, silver, jewellery, ceramics, furniture and textiles – were harnessed around the turn of the 20th century by the great London store of Liberty & Co to create a distinctive new look. They produced original work of the highest quality, setting a trend in artistic expression that reacted strongly against the decadence of the Aesthetic Movement and the fussiness of Victoriana. It came to be known worldwide as the Liberty Style.
As well as examining the significance of the Liberty Style and placing it in its artistic context, this elegant monograph illustrates an extensive range of the work supplied to the firm between 1898 and 1910, and documents in two invaluable directories the companies and individual designers who produced it.
