The Arts and Crafts Interior from Britain to Russia


Wednesday 12 January 2011 - 14:30 until 15:30

The Arts and Crafts Movement was one of huge intellectual ambition, encompassing everything from menus in Moscow to chic domestic architecture in the United States. Born of thinkers and practitioners in Victorian England who despaired of the clutter pervading architecture and design, the movement exalted the interior space as an arena in which to raise the status and quality of the applied arts through collaborative work. As the 19th century progressed, such practice began to resonate beyond Britain's shores. This illustrated lecture charts the movement's evolution from the brainchild of some quirky British individuals to an artistic development of international renown.
