Following 2021’s Spanning the Atlantic: The Arts & Crafts Movement in Britain, this exhibition is the second of a two-part series examining the international Arts & Crafts movement. First developed in the British Isles during the 19th century, the Arts & Crafts movement was spurred by anxieties over industrialization which fueled a resurgence of traditional craftsmanship. With harkening nods to medieval, folk, and colonial forms and an emphasis on rectilinearity, an earthy palette, and subdued ornamentation, the Arts & Crafts movement reached its height in America in the early 20th century. Spanning the Atlantic: The Arts & Crafts Movement in America brings together over 100 objects from this period, including exceptional examples of furniture by Gustav Stickley and Harvey Ellis; pottery by Grueby Faience Company; Newcomb Pottery and Rookwood; glass by Tiffany; and silver, metalwork, and textiles by some of the most talented American craftsmen and women of the time.
