Arts and Crafts

Encyclopedy Index

The Arts and Crafts movement originated in mid-nineteenth-century Britain, with art/designers such as John Ruskin and William Morris. It reached the height of its popularity in the last years of the nineteenth century and the early years of the 20th century in both Britain and the United States, where is was also known as American Craftsman, or Craftsman style. The Arts and Crafts ideology promoted the role of the craftsman, and looked to Gothic and Medieval styles as an antidote to the superficial, fussy, and eclectic look of Victorian-era design.
