Stanford White : decorator in opulence and dealer in antiquities by Wayne Craven( Book )

10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wayne Craven's work offers the first study of Stanford White as an interior decorator and a dealer in antiques and the fine arts. Craven also offers a vivid portrait of the sweeping social and cultural changes taking place in the United States in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. He situates White's work as an interior decorator within the context of the lives and society of the nouveaux riches who built unprecedented fortunes during the Industrial Revolution." "Based on the archives of the Avery Architectural and Fine Arts Library at Columbia University and the New-York Historical Society, this book recovers a neglected yet significant part of White's career, which lasted from the 1870s to his murder in 1906. White not only set the standard for twentieth-century architecture but also defined the newly emerging profession of interior design."--Jacket
Gilded mansions : grand architecture and high society by Wayne Craven( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A lavishly illustrated history of the opulent art and architecture of the Gilded Age. The Gilded Age (1865-1918) saw the sudden rise of America's first High Society, including such prominent families as the Astors, Whitneys, and Vanderbilts. As an aristocracy based on fortunes recently acquired, these families endeavored to live like Europe's blue-blooded nobility, shedding Puritan restraint as they joyously flaunted their new wealthespecially where their homes were concerned. They erected French chateaus and Italian palazzos on New York's Fifth Avenue, at Newport, and elsewhere, often taking inspiration from Parisian styles of the Second Empire. They rejected more modest American styles just as they rejected middle-class society, and for interior decoration they turned to such artisans as Tiffany, Herter Brothers, and Allard's of Paris. Immensely readable and illuminated with 250 stunning color and black-and-white illustrations, this is the fascinating story of America's first millionaire society, the way they lived and partied, and the lush artistic and cultural legacy they established. 100 color, 150 black-and-white illustrations
