Product description

Women in the Arts and Crafts Movement 1870-1914

Anthea Callen

Astragal Books, London, 1980.

First published in 1979 in hardback under the title “Angel in the Studio” by Astragal Books an imprint of The Architectural Press Ltd, London.

Soft-bound; 210 x 295 mm; 232 pages; illustrations within text. No dust jacket.

The book is in very good condition. The binding is sound. Very minor wear to the covers. Page end tanning.

“Although much has been written about Art Nouveau, the Arts & Crafts Movement, which has turned out to be of more lasting importance, has been relatively neglected by design historians. One of its most interesting social aspects was the close relationship of the revolutionary design movement to emergent feminism in both Britain and the United States through its encouragement and recruitment of large numbers of British and American women into formally organised art education for the first time in history. Although many middle-class women were trained who subsequently rose to fame in their own day…the author rescues hundreds of other extremely gifted women artists from the shadows of history and shows how their recruitment was related to the contemporary rise of Socialism and provided a means of freeing women from abject economic dependency on male relatives or the few degrading alternatives of employment.”
