Arts & Crafts StyleIsabelle Anscombe

The Arts and Crafts movement flourished in the 1870s and 80s. At its heart was a quest 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. This richly illustrated survey examines the movement in Europe and North America with erudition and enthusiasm. Specifications:
