The Arts and Crafts movement in architecture, interior or design, and decorative arts reach its peak between 1880 and 1910 in Britain and North America. 'Apostles of Beauty' presents examples by the movement's British originators, such as William Morris and Charles Robert Ashbee, as well as its American practitioners, such as Gustav Stickley and Frank Lloyd Wright. The volume shows a range of objects, including ceramics, furniture, metalwork, paintings, photographs, and textiles. It tries to focus on Chicago's absorption and interpretation of the movement, featuring works from the Art Institute, the University of Chicago, the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio, Crab Tree Farm, and private collections. Contributors to the book aim to explore the influences of the Arts and Crafts style and intend to provide a thematic history of the movement, featuring a section on design and collecting in Chicago.
