IMAGINING AN IRISH PAST: THE CELTIC REVIVAL, 1840-1940. Ed. by T.J. Edelstein. David and Alfred Smart Museum of Art, University of Chicago, 1992. Distributed by University of Chicago Press. 180 pp. with 65 ills. (7 col.). 24 x 19 cm. LC 91-47139 ISBN 0935573127 In English.
Accompanying an exhibition of more than 280 decorative objects (metalwork, ceramics, jewelry, textiles, stained glass and pattern books) assembled to illustrate the appeal of traditional Irish motifs to 19th-century craftsmen, this largely textual catalogue provides a thorough study of the Celtic revival movement in the British Isles. Six scholarly texts discuss the renewal of interest in Irish artistic traditions sparked by archaeological discoveries, archival research and nationalistic political trends; the role of key designers in disseminating the Celtic style internationally; and the promotion of Irish culture at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago.
