THE IDEAL HOME, 1900-1920: THE HISTORY OF TWENTIETH-CENTURY AMERICAN CRAFT. Ed. by Janet Kardon. American Craft Museum, New York, 1993. Published in association with Harry N. Abrams, Inc., New York. 304 pp. with 269 ills. (99 col.). 30 x 23 cm. LC 93-3121 ISBN 0810934671 In English.
Documenting the first in an ambitious series of eight exhibitions planned to highlight the achievements of 20th-century American artisans, this detailed study of the impact of the Arts and Crafts movement on designs for the domestic environment in the early 1900s features reproductions of some 200 diverse works (furniture, ceramics, jewelry, textiles, metalwork and glassware) by John La Farge, Gustav Stickley, Louis Comfort Tiffany, Adelaide Alsop Robineau, George Washington Maher, Frank Lloyd Wright and scores of other figures. Nine substantial essays discuss the changing status of American women as reflected in the studio craft movement, describe the critical reception of new trends in decorative arts in the United States, examine the character of American Arts and Crafts architecture, and trace developments in each of the major craft disciplines during the period.
