The author takes a detailed look at the design and decoration of domestic interiors in Europe and America during a period that has never before been considered in its own right. The homes protrayed include those of aristocrates and artists, members of fashionable society and the bourgeoisie.

Great women collectors by Charlotte Gere( Book )

9 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is the first to look at the very few women who, from 1750 to 1997 (the book does not include living collectors), independently assembled significant collections of art, ceramics, jewelry, glass, furniture, textiles, silver, photography, and other objects." "Richly illustrated throughout, Great Women Collectors shows that the kinds of collections created by these empresses, queens, socialites, actresses, and entrepreneurs often differed tangibly from those of their male counterparts. Authors Charlotte Gere and Marina Vaizey consider how and why these women collected, and explore the obstacles they overcame to create such important collections, many of which can be seen today, sometimes in their entirety, in public museums and galleries."--Jacket

Artistic circles : design & decoration in the aesthetic movement by Charlotte Gere( Book )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and Swedish and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Artists' houses and their gardens formed a distinct and influential strand in Victorian architecture and decoration, eliciting public interest and coverage in the popular press of the day. The artist's home and its contents were essential components of the Aesthetic Movement, in which artists - as home-owners, interior designers, producers and consumers - drove the movement into the mainstream. Artists such as Frederic Leighton, G.F. Watts, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Edward Burne-Jones were the product of the phenomenon of the Victorian art world which brought fame and public adulation to its most successful exponents. "Artistic Circles" takes the unique approach of examining Aestheticism from a social perspective and reveals how the art movement influenced the development of domestic building and homemaking for an emerging section of Victorian society, the educated middle-class professional

This richly illustrated book covers one of the most fascinating yet poorly documented periods of jewellery design.

Jewellery in the age of Queen Victoria : a mirror to the world by Charlotte Gere( Book )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 'age of Victoria' is taken in its widest sense to encompass jewellery made throughout Europe and America, displayed at the great international exhibitions and distributed through foreign trade, illustrated publications and a burgeoning tourist industry... The focus of the book is on the attitudes of owners to their jewellery and the symbolic weight that it was expected to carry. Rather than concentrating on the major figures at the top end of the jewellery trade, or indeed offering a chronological survey of the development of jewellery styles and fashions, it is oriented towards the social aspects of owning, wearing and displaying jewellery. The authors show, for example, how novelists use jewellery to add a moral or metaphorical dimension to a character, while jewels depicted in portraits would often have disclosed multiple messages which could be immediately decoded by the viewer. The achievements of science, the fascination with nature and the Victorian sense of humour are all embodied in jewellery. Topics discussed in depth include the importance of jewellery in the life of the Queen herself, jewellery and dress, the language of jewellery, the cult of novelty, the importance of nationalism in the revival of historical styles, and the contribution of archaeological discoveries."--Publisher's description
A brush with nature : the Gere collection of landscape oil sketches by Christopher Riopelle( Book )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beginning in the 1950s, John and Charlotte Gere pioneered the collecting of small-scale landscape oil sketches created by eighteenth- and nineteenth-century artists working out of doors. Such pictures, painted quickly to capture subtle atmospheric effects and the fleeting play of light, played a vital role in the visual training of generations of European artists. The sketches were not conceived of as finished works of art, were rarely if ever exhibited during the painters' lifetimes, and were often kept in the studio for later consultation." "Today the Gere collection numbers some 70 works, the majority of them views of Italy by British, French, Italian, German, Belgian and Scandinavian artists. It includes paintings by such admired figures as Thomas Jones, Pierre-Henri de Valenciennes, Simon Denis, Louis Gauffier, Francois-Marius Granet, Gilles Classon, Giovanni-Battista Camuccini and Frederic, Lord Leighton. These intimate and compelling documents of artists at work form what is perhaps the most comprehensive collection of its kind." "Two introductory essays provide a background to the collection. Charlotte Gere's memoir charts its formation, while Christopher Riopelle's essay traces the development of the plein-air oil sketch, and its place in European painting. This revised edition incorporates new information about the paintings gathered since the Gere collection was first shown at the National Gallery in summer 1999, much of it generously provided by visitors to that exhibition."--Jacket
