Arts and Crafts movement

Isaac Kremer/ January 14, 2018/ / 0 comments

A philosophy of design stressing handmade, artistically designed products, and a return to preindustrial design. A late 19th-century design movement of English origin, to counter the trend toward mechanically reproduced mass production of ornament and furniture. Objects and designs were influenced by the Middle Ages and the art of Japan. This movement had a strong influence on the early work of Frank Lloyd Wright and the American Prairie style; the Craftsman bungalows of Gustav Stickley and the California bungalows of Greene and Greene are other fine examples. Also called Arts and Crafts Style or the Craftsman Style. (Kremer, 2023)
