The Eames lounge chair : an icon of modern design by Martin P Eidelberg( Book )

15 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is the first in-depth study of one of the most revered pieces of American furniture, and its equally revered creators. The Eames Lounge Chair explores the design in detail, shedding new light on its development and construction, and on the role played by Ray Eames in its genesis. In situating the Lounge Chair in its cultural, social, and historical contexts, the book reveals its provocative positioning in relation to Modernism and the trajectory of twentieth century design, through its combination of traditional and modern materials, mechanical production, and hand-finishing. The personal and professional recollections of those who knew Charles and Ray Eames confirm the Lounge Chair's enduring appeal and powerful presence, from its arrival - to critical acclaim - in the mid-1950s, when it promised a more comfortable life to postwar Americans, to its latterday appearance in fiction and film as an icon of "Mid-Century Modern" design - and a key indicator of design awareness." "With more than two hundred illustrations, including a superb photographic essay and previously unpublished drawings, film stills, and personal correspondence, this book is the definitive survey of the Lounge Chair and a tribute to its remarkable creators, who, above all, "took their pleasures seriously." The Eames Lounge Chair is essential reading for anyone interested in Modernist design."--BOOK JACKET

Watteau : the drawings by Pierre Rosenberg( Book )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Antoine Watteau (1684 1721) produced some of the most seductive drawings in Western art. This book, published to accompany an exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, reproduces his finest examples, revealing the delicacy and freedom of execution that so impressed early commentators and had such a profound effect on subsequent generations of artists, notably François Boucher and Jean Honore; Fragonard. Well known art historians Pierre Rosenberg and Louis Antoine Prat examine these masterly studies, focusing on the artist's development as a draftsman, the techniques that he perfected, and the fascinating role that drawing played in his work. The illustrations, which include recently discovered works, are superbly reproduced
A new light on Tiffany : Clara Driscoll and the Tiffany Girls by Martin P Eidelberg( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933) is celebrated today as one of the most influential creative designers of the late 19th- and early 20th-centuries. A New Light on Tiffany: Clara Driscoll and the Tiffany Girls presents the celebrated works of Tiffany Studios in an entirely new context, focusing on the "Tiffany Girls", the 27 women who laboured behind the scenes to create the masterpieces now inextricably linked to the Tiffany name. Recently discovered correspondence written by Ohio-born Clara Driscoll, head of the so-called "Women's Glass Cutting Department" at Tiffany Studios, reveals in convincing and vivid detail how it was in fact Driscoll who generated designs for such masterpieces as the famous Wisteria, Dragonfly and Peony goods. At the heart of the book are over 50 Tiffany lamps, windows, ceramics, enamels and mosaics, supplemented by a wide array of related documents and archival photographs

Behind the scenes of Tiffany glassmaking : the Nash notebooks : including Tiffany favrile glass by Leslie Hayden Nash by Martin P Eidelberg( Book )

4 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The world-renowned beauty and value of Tiffany glass lamps, vases, and windows are legendary. But few know that the masterful pieces from the Tiffany's firm would not have been possible without Arthur Nash, developer of the now-priceless Favrile glass, and his son Leslie, director of the Tiffany Furnace's divisions of glassmaking, pottery, and enamel. Leslie's notebooks, along with annotations and references, provide an invaluable firsthand account of the studio's heyday while introducing the largest collection of heretofore unseen images of its earliest pieces. This historical find is a remarkable event in the decorative arts world and will appeal to both collectors and museums as well as those who use eBay and watch Antiques Road Show."--Jacket
