Connecticut needlework : women, art, and family, 1740-1840 by Connecticut Historical Society( )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This selection of needlework from the Connecticut Historical Society, enhanced by Schoelwer's thorough scholarly analysis of materials, designs, imagery, and use, establishes needlework as an important part of the visual culture of eighteenth-and nineteenth-century America. Whether worn, framed on the wall, or used as bed covers, needle work was seen by generations of families and friends. This is a model for further needlework studies." --Georgia B. Barnhill, American Antiquarian Society

The general in the garden : George Washington's landscape at Mount Vernon by Adam T Erby( Book )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The General in the Garden provides an engaging, informative, and richly illustrated introduction to George Washington's landscape at Mount Vernon - arguably the best-documented, best-preserved complex of gardens and grounds to survive from eighteenth-century America. The book's three essays, by Adam T. Erby, J. Dean Norton, and Esther C. White, chronicle Washington's transformation of the estate in the years between the American Revolution and the Constitutional Convention of 1787, the stewardship of its gardens by the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association since 1860, and the archaeology that led to the recent restoration of Washington's showplace upper garden. Mount Vernon assistant curator Adam Erby examines Washington's critical role in developing Mount Vernon's landscape, arguing that the general drew on British design sources and gardening manuals but adapted them to his own circumstances, creating a truly American garden. J. Dean Norton, Mount Vernon's director of horticulture, traces the evolution of the estate's landscape and recreated gardens across the two centuries since Washington's death. And Esther White, Mount Vernon's director of historic preservation and research, shows how groundbreaking archaeological methods facilitated the discovery of Washington-era garden beds and borders of flowers, shrubs, and vegetables in his upper garden - a remarkable find that yielded one of the most significant eighteenth-century garden recreations of our time. Also included is a lavishly illustrated guide to Mount Vernon's landscape features, introducing Washington's beloved estate to a modern audience. This book will appeal to many readers - from students of American history and culture to gardening enthusiasts to Mount Vernon visitors curious to know more about the estate to which George Washington devoted intense and sophisticated care.

"This catalogue - published in conjunction with a major traveling exhibition - features works from The Connecticut Historical Society, which houses the nation's preeminent collection of early American painted tavern signs. Eight essays, written by prominent scholars of American art and cultural history, explore the medium and discuss why these signs are much more than picturesque relics of bygone times. Indeed, this volume reconnects sign paintings to the broad continuum of artistic genres and practices within which they were produced, displayed, and viewed."--Jacket
