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, quiet beauty and honesty
of construction. There is no single
recognisable style that represents
Arts and Crafts; an interior could be
exotic and precious, with rich
colours and patterns, or homely and
plain, as long as it adhered to the
Arts and Crafts ideal of hand
craftsmanship. The craft workshops
and guilds, created in idealized
imitation of their medieval
counterparts, produced furniture and
textiles, metalwork and ceramics
which raised the status of such
objects from minor household
articles to the decorative arts.
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
internationally, throughout Europe
and America.
