Thomas Jefferson's Monticello by Robert C Lautman( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Jefferson's Monticello is a collection of essays and color photography showcasing this extraordinary American home. Featuring essays written by scholars at Monticello, chapters focus on all aspects of the house and plantation. Monticello, a model of elegance and symmetry, was designed by Jefferson himself, whose architectural prowess prompted a visitor in 1782 to note: "Mr. Jefferson is the first American who has consulted the Fine Arts to know how he should shelter himself from the weather." Inside, Jefferson assembled a world-class collection of objects and furnishings: art and porcelain from France, scientific instruments from England, the finest American furniture from Philadelphia and New York, natural artifacts brought back from the West, as well as furnishings made in Monticello's own joinery by enslaved craftsmen. Surrounding the house, Monticello's celebrated gardens and grounds form an experimental yet breathtakingly lovely landscape of flowers, fruits, and vegetables from the Old and New Worlds. A final chapter on the plantation and the enslaved community at Monticello provides a context in which to place and understand the house and its owner

Treasures of the American Arts and Crafts Movement, 1890-1920 by Tod M Volpe( Book )

3 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 7 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
