American colonial : Puritan simplicity to Georgian grace by Wendell D Garrett( Book )

12 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The American colonial design period moves from the late twilight of medievalism through traditional building methods to the sophisticated pattern-book formality of the Age of Enlightenment, with its rules of taste and insistence on order and symmetry. While early structures were largely derived from English prototypes, American buildings soon evidenced intense regionalism, reflecting local tastes and preferences; those tastes were in some cases academic and high style, and in others vernacular and of folk origin. The variety and dynamism in American domestic architecture in the colonial period are indicative of the pluralism of American society. Added to these factors of provincialism, regionalism, and academic tastes are the elements of social, cultural, economic, and technical history affecting American architecture. From the earliest period of simple heavy timber framing to the later period of elegant brick and stone, from wedding chests to Chippendale chairs, authentic colonial architecture and interiors are explored in more than two hundred color photographs that capture the essence of the colonial kitchen, parlor, bedchamber, and workshop. The principal photography is by Paul Rocheleau, who brings his expertise in architectural photography and sensitivity to the design period to this ultimate survey of American colonial

Earl Cunningham's America by Earl Cunningham( Book )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This retrospective presents the artist as a folk modernist who used the flat space and brilliant color to create sophisticated compositions with complex meanings about the nature of American life. The exhibition features 50 of the more than 400 canvases Cunningham painted during his life. The exhibition and the fully illustrated catalog trace the story of Cunningham's life and place his work in the context of the folk art revival that brought Edward Hicks, Grandma Moses, Horace Pippin and other folk masters to national attention. Virginia Mecklenburg, senior curator for painting and sculpture, is the curator of the exhibition. Cunningham's imaginary landscapes are marvels of the unexpected and the unlikely: pink flamingos dot the shoreline of the Maine coast; New England cottages sit at the edge of Florida swamps; Viking ships float in harbors with schooners; and Seminole Indians wear feathered headdresses. In this make-believe world, Cunningham presents a nostalgic view of the past in which life is simple and elements of modern life are absent. His fascination with the past was in line with a larger national revival of interest in vernacular culture and American folk art in the 1920s and 1930s. - Publisher
