Mary Greensted tells the story of the birth and development of the Arts and Craft movement in Britain with the help of numerous illustrations showing the buildings, furniture, metalwork, and the people who influenced it. The movement was concerned with the revival of traditional crafts, and a return to the vernacular, and it had socialist ideals at its heart. This movement, which flourished in the early twentieth century, has not only bequeathed us with a wealth of fine objects and buildings, but also a way of thinking about life and craft that continues to influence many today. Contains information on dozens of designers, artists, architects and thinkers, including: William Morris CFA Voysey Charles Rennie Mackintosh AH Mackmurdo CR Ashbee Ernest Gimson

“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.” This quote alone from William Morris could summarise the ideology of the Arts & Crafts movement, which triggered a veritable reform in the applied arts in England. Founded by John Ruskin, then put into practice by William Morris, the Arts & Crafts movement promoted revolutionary ideas in Victorian England. In the middle of the “soulless” Industrial Era, when objects were standardised, the Arts & Crafts movement proposed a return to the aesthetic at the core of production. The work of artisans and meticulous design thus became the heart of this new ideology, which influenced styles throughout the world, translating the essential ideas of Arts & Crafts into design, architecture and painting.

Internationalism And The Arts In Britain And Europe At The Fin De Si Cle

This collection of essays stems from the conference 'Internationalism and the Arts: Anglo-European Cultural Exchange at the "Fin de Siecle"' held at Magdalene College, Cambridge, in July 2006. The growth of internationalism in Europe at the "fin de siecle" encouraged confidence in the possibility of peace. A wartorn century later, it is easy to forget such optimism. Flanked by the Franco-Prussian war and the First World War, the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries were marked by rising militarism. Themes of national consolidation and aggression have become key to any analysis of the period. Yet despite the drive towards political and cultural isolation, transnational networks gathered increasing support. This book examines the role played by artists, writers, musicians and intellectuals in promoting internationalism. It explores the range of individuals, media and movements involved, from cosmopolitan characters such as Walter Sickert and Henri La Fontaine, through internationalist art societies, to periodicals, performance, and the mobility of the Arts and Crafts Movement. The discussion takes in the geographical breadth of Europe, incorporating Belgium, Bohemia, Britain, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Norway, Poland, Russia and Slovakia. Drawing on the work of scholars from across Europe and America, the collection makes a statement about the complexity of European identities at the "fin de siecle," as well as about the possibilities for interdisciplinary research in our own era."

This is a comprehensive survey of English textiles from the era when Britain led the design world. For twenty-five years after the first Arts and Crafts Exhibition in 1888, they were shown throughout Europe and the United States, influencing designers and attracting a large public, and were sold by the most fashionable shops. The refined creations of Arthur Silver (including Liberty's celebrated Peacock Feather), the distinctive designs of C.F.A. Voysey, the floral patterns of Lindsay Butterfield and George Haité - all are a source of delight and aesthetic inspiration. Some of the printed fabrics are popular again today through their recent revival by manufacturers. But the full variety of techniques exploited by the Arts and Crafts Movement - including not only printed but woven textiles, tapestries and carpets, embroideries and lace - is still unfamiliar. The volume examines the whole range of Arts and Crafts textiles and provides invaluable new information on designers, manufacturers and shops. The illustrations have been selected from the outstanding collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, supplemented by notable examples from other museums in Britain and elsewhere. Also included are rare photographs of some of the designers and of original interiors, where the fabrics appear in use.

This work focuses on the efforts toward reforming women's dress that took place in Europe and America in the latter half of the 18th century and the first decade of the 20th century, and the types of garments adopted by women to overcome the challenges posed by fashionable dress. It considers the many advocates for reform and examines their motives, their arguments for change, and how they promoted improvements in women's fashion. Though there was no single overarching dress reform movement, it reveals similarities among the arguments posed by diverse groups of reformers, including especially the equation of reform with an ideal image of improved health. Drawing on a variety of primary and secondary sources in the USA and Europe - including the popular press, advice books for women, allopathic and alternative medical literature, and books on aesthetics, art, health, and physical education - the text makes a significant contribution to costume studies, social history, and women's studies.
