A New and Native Beauty: The Art and Craft of Greene and Greene

Author(s): Edward R. Bosley and Anne E. Mallek (eds)


he architects Charles Sumner Greene and Henry Mather Greene worked together in California at the turn of the twentieth century, developing a distinctly American interpretation of the Arts and Crafts style. Between 1902 and 1910 the brothers produced their finest work, not only creating private residences but also providing design and construction supervision of furniture and other interior elements. This superbly illustrated book celebrates the decorative arts of Greene and Greene, and features essays exploring their furniture designs, metalwork and stained glass, among other aspects of their exquisite craftsmanship.

2008. First edition. A fine, unmarked copy in a near fine d/w with only light shelf wear to the rear panel.
