Summary
Meant for both connoisseur and amateur, this is the definitive book in its field. During ten years of research, the authors examined furniture from coast to coast, in museums and private collections. American Furniture has a running text along with its identification captions, which places furniture in its social and historical context. In its 100 color pictures and 1300 black-and-white photos, the book frequently presents furniture in the rooms they were made for. There is extensive coverage of the masterpieces from the seventeenth century to the present, many of them newly photographed for this book, but coverage is by no means restricted to these pieces. This is the first book to encompass furniture "away from the mainstream"--Pieces made away from the furniture centers of New York, New England, and Pennsylvania. Thus, there is discussion of the furniture of the Southwest; furniture made in Dutch, Spanish, French, and Norwegian settlements; and furniture made in religious enclaves or as part of social or aesthetic reform movements. Also, line drawings reveal how antique furniture was made--and therefore how to tell a genuine antique from a forgery.--From publisher description
