THE NEW LOOK: DESIGN IN THE FIFTIES. Lesley Jackson. Manchester City Art Galleries, 1991. Published in the U.S.A. by Thames and Hudson Inc., New York. 160 pp. with 265 ills. (86 col.). 26 x 22 cm. LC 91-65322 ISBN 0500276447 In English.
Provides a detailed and well-illustrated study of the radical transformation of design aesthetics in postwar Europe and America, presenting furniture by such figures as Charles Eames, Gio Ponti, Eero Saarinen, Arne Jacobsen and Isamu Noguchi, fashions by Dior, Balenciaga and Cardin, and a wide variety of glassware, textiles, ceramics, tableware and other domestic furnishings which illustrate the dominance of the "new look" and the diversity of its applications. Six essays closely examining the organic and abstract shapes, patterns and imagery of design in the 1950s in the context of developments in art and architecture are supplemented with an extensive directory of key figures and national trends in eight areas of design during the period.
