Nineteenth-Century Design from Pugin to Mackintosh

Charlotte Gere, Author, Michael Whiteway, With ABRAMS $95 (312p) ISBN 978-0-8109-3672-0
Augustus Pugin, who died insane at the age of 40 in 1852, designed interiors for the Palace of Westminster, spearheaded the Gothic Revival and laid the foundation for Britain's preeminence in 19th-century design. Beginning with Pugin, this detailed, magnificently illustrated study traces interwoven artistic strands--the Arts and Crafts movement, the ``American Renaissance'' style of Louis Tiffany, Art Nouveau, etc.--and documents the experiments of William Morris, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Christopher Dresser and others in architecture, furniture, glass, ceramics, textiles and metalwork. Gere ( Nine teeth- Century Decoration ) and Whiteway, a consultant in 19th-century design, pay special attention to the ``Art Movement'' led by Edward Burne-Jones, Walter Crane and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, which merged Gothic with Queen Anne Revival, vernacular, Japonisme and Egyptian exoticism. This striking volume will be indispensable to students of the period. (May)
