reaction to the ornamental excesses of
the mid-nineteenth century. At its
heart was once a look for a go back to
simplicity, quiet good looks and honesty
of development. there is not any single
recognisable variety that represents
Arts and Crafts an inside may possibly be
exotic and worthwhile, with rich
colours and styles, or homely and
plain, so long as it adhered to the

craftsmanship. The craft workshops
and guilds, created in idealized
imitation in their medieval
counterparts, produced furnishings and
textiles, metalwork and ceramics
which raised the prestige of such
objects from minor household
articles to the ornamental arts.
Arts & Crafts variety is a richly
illustrated survey of this middle-class
revolution in aesthetic flavor, which
draws jointly its many different
strands and appears specifically at
how the fashion was once interpreted
internationally, all through Europe
and America.
