Overview

Marketplace Product

More than 530 beautifully photographed examples of jewelry and art-enamel work glow from the pages of this first comprehensive study of the work and aesthetic vision of the American Arts & Crafts Movement. The lives and art of the era’s top craftsmen – 84 jewelers, enamelists, and metalsmiths – are explained with careful consideration to the contexts and influences that shaped them. The belief that beauty should be part of everyday life was paramount in the design reform movements of the early 20th century. Dozens of creators are featured here, including Josephine Hartwell Shaw, Frank Gardner Hale, Robert Riddle Jarvie, the Kalo Shop, Louis Comfort Tiffany, and the Roycroft. Although jewelry and enamelwork pieces received appreciative critical acclaim in that period, during today’s revival of interest in the US Arts & Crafts movement, they have attracted scant attention from art historians. This collection fills that void and is a valuable resource for collectors and historians. AUTHOR: Rosalie Berberian, recognized as an authority on the silver, jewelry, and art enamels of the American Arts & Crafts Movement, was presented the Lifetime Achievement Award by the National Conference of Arts & Crafts in 2008 for her pioneering work. SELLING POINTS: More than 530 examples of jewellery and art-enamel works, some newly discovered, by 84 craftsmen The first comprehensive study of the American Arts & Crafts Movement’s jewellery and art enamels Elegantly presents the stories and breathtaking work of America’s master artists in jewels and enamel 531 colour and b/w images
