It endeavored to reunite the individual with nature and the satisfaction of productive work. [This rare out-of-print book] describes the character of the esthetic reform movement as it reached the West Coast at the turn of the century.” CALIFORNIA DESIGN 1910 edited by Timothy J. Anderson, Eudorah M. Moore, and Robert W. Winter, Peregrine Smith Books, UT, 1980. The profuse black-and-white photographs, in-depth captions, and rich narrative combine to make this comprehensive book an invaluable reference. “Biographies of more than fifty painters, essays on Charles and Henry Green, Arthur and Lucia Mathews, Ernest Batchelder, and many others, by experts in the field, make this compendium a research tool and historical resource for the historian as well as entertaining reading for those interested in this fascinating period in history.” The text covers such topics as: Paintings (names too numerous to mention), Literature and Presswork, Education in the Arts and Crafts, Pottery (California Faience, American Encaustic Tiling Co., Rhead Pottery, Ernest Batchelder, Arequipa Pottery, and more), Metalwork (Dirk van Erp, Harry S. Dixon, Ernest Batchelder, Old Mission Kopper Kraft, Shreve & Co., and more); Furniture (Arthur F. and Lucia K. Mathews, Greene and Greene, Harold Doolittle), and Architecture by Charles and Henry Greene, Harold Doolittle, and Louis Easton. There is a wealth of information in this early out-of-print text which should satisfy both the novice and seasoned student of California architecture and design.
