Description
At the turn of the 20th century it was commonly held that a home that expressed an artful, harmonious soul would instill high aesthetic and moral merit in its inhabitants. The Aesthetic Movement in America helped to popularize the idea that everyone, not just the wealthy, should be able to enjoy beautiful, well-made homes and furnishings. This richly illustrated bookóby a former curator of Frederic Edwin Church's estate Olana, from the same periodólooks at historical architecture and furnishings as well as modern objects that show the same aesthetic, and offers insights into how American houses of the past have shaped our houses today.
