Art nouveau by Alastair Duncan ( Book )
48 editions published between 1978 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 2,785 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Alastair Duncan, a recognized expert on the period, tells the story of the meteoric rise and fall of Art Nouveau, which began as a general reaction by young artists and designers to the stifling traditionalism and revivalism of the mid-nineteenth-century fine and decorative arts. The "new art" first made itself felt around 1895, in architecture, furniture, glass, ceramics and the other applied arts, and fell into eclipse after World War One, until its rediscovery in the 1960s. The author recounts the history of this important modern movement in detail, introducing the main personalities - Galle, Lalique, Tiffany and others - and relating their aims and accomplishments to the background from which the movement emerged."--BOOK JACKET

Treasures of the American Arts and Crafts Movement, 1890-1920 by Tod M Volpe ( Book )
12 editions published between 1988 and 2003 in English and held by 1,029 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Based on the ideals of William Morris and his circle, the Arts and Crafts Movement flourished vigorously when transplanted to American soil at the turn of the century. With Gustave Stickley as its moving spirit, the movement eventually included such notable designers, architects and firms as Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Comfort Tiffany, Adelaide Alsop Robineau, Greene and Greene, the Rookwood Pottery, Elbert Hubbard's Roycroft Shops and Louis Sullivan. Together they forged a new, forward-looking aesthetic that was much more than a particular style: not only was it a philosophy of life, promoting physical and moral well-being, but it also fostered the beginnings of twentieth-century design. Compiled by connoisseurs of Arts and Crafts, and with a text by Alastair Duncan, this book is both the most comprehensive and authoritative treatment of the movement available and a sumptuous photographic collection of Arts and Crafts masterpieces. Pictured here in more than 130 colour images are stained glass, furniture, silver and metalwork, ceramics, textiles, lighting and more, all specially photographed for this volume. The principles of Arts and Crafts are no less cogent today than they were a hundred years ago, and all those seeking to create a meaningful home environment will find here an eloquent exposition of ideas and an indispensable variety of forms."--Amazon
