Craft in the Machine Age, 1920-1945 by N.Y.) American Craft Museum (New York( Book )

10 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The period between the two world wars has come to be known as the machine age, the era of the airplane and the ocean liner, the time when Manhattan became a beacon of modernism symbolized by that indominitable structure, the great American skyscraper. This was also the time when hundreds of European artists fled to this country, seeking liberty and a better life, and bringing with them new ideas and new technical skills, thereby significantly influencing and altering the face of American craft." "Craft in the Machine Age: 1920-1945 focuses on this period in American design. International in spirit, these twenty-five years witnessed a great many influences and styles: the influx of emigre artists, such as Eliel Saarinen, Josef Albers, Gertrud and Otto Natzler, and Paul T. Frankl; the landmark 1925 Paris exposition; the Bauhaus both in this country and abroad; the famous "World of Tomorrow" exhibition at the 1939 New York World's Fair. Individually and collectively, each contributed to the shift in craft as it moved away from the handcrafted objects of the Arts and Crafts Movement to the streamlined and geometric forms of European modernism." "Some of the finest works in the areas of ceramics, glass, metal, textiles, and wood made by the most important craft artists and designers of these decades are presented here in more than 250 illustrations, 90 of which appear in full color." "Experts in the fields of furniture, textiles, glass, ceramics, and metalwork discuss the major practitioners of this period, the European artists who immigrated to America, some of whom founded such famous schools as the Cranbrook Academy of Art, Black Mountain College, and the New Bauhaus in Chicago, and other developments in the craft community, among them the Studio Glass movement. An extensive reference section on the artists, exhibitions, production centers, and more make this book a major contribution to our knowledge and understanding of American craft during one of its most fertile and innovative periods."--Jacket

MAS, the Modern Architecture Symposia, 1962-1966 : a critical edition( Book )

3 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a series of three symposia at Columbia University in the 1960s, leading scholars and critics gathered to re-examine the architecture of the 1910s, 1920s, and 1930s and assess its scope and significance anew. Chaired by Henry-Russell Hitchcock with the support of Philip Johnson, the Modern Architecture Symposia marked a pivotal moment in the reappraisal of early modern architecture and its historiography during the late modern period. This book contains the symposia's formal papers and informal conversations, the majority unpublished and presented for the first time as a group, and offers new insight into the architects, ideologies, stylistic influences, and geographic variation that informed modern architectural production in the early 20th century. Additionally, the discussions it captures between symposia participants--many of whom were considered to be foremost among European and American architectural historians of the period--reveal emerging methodological debates that would reshape the dominant narrative during the late modern and postmodern period
