The first substantial study of the achievements of Gustave (1830-1898) and Christian Herter (1839-1883), leading designers of furniture and interiors in late 19th-century America, this scholarly catalogue features excellent reproductions and detailed examinations of 42 elegantly ornate cabinets, tables, chairs and other furniture pieces produced by the German-born artists' New York-based firm while also presenting photographs of opulent interiors they designed for such clients as J. Pierpont Morgan and William H. Vanderbilt. Seven well-illustrated essays include discussions of the Herter brothers' innovative adaptations of British, French and German furniture styles, their major interior design commissions, and their status within the highly competitive New York furniture industry of the period.
