Rethinking the Interior, C.1867-1896: Aestheticism and Arts and Crafts

Front Cover

Ashgate Publishing Company, 2010 - Art - 277 pages
From Aesthetes in Africa to the cultural history of the teapot, this collection addresses the topic of eclectic relationships in Victorian decorative art. Rethinking the Interior, c. 1867-1896 argues that no firm demarcation exists between Aestheticism and Arts and Crafts, the two movements examined here. The volume addresses the complex and temporary character of interiors, and challenges the identification of nineteenth-century interiors as exclusively female or family spaces.
