Arts and Crafts artist-designers changed the lives of Scots. Through the furnishing of public buildings, exhibitions, church craft and home design, they aimed to restore beauty to everyday experience. They worked in such diverse fields as furniture, textiles, jewellery and metalwork, glass, ceramics, mural decoration and architectural design and crafts. Theirs is a narrative of close networks of families and friends, men and women, designers and industrialists dedicated to the rights of the individual and to the proper place of art within modern society. It is a remarkable and often inspiring story of ideals, commitment and imagination.

About the Author:

Elizabeth Cumming is a graduate of Edinburgh University. She was initially a curator of fine art in Dundee and in Edinburgh, where she was Keeper of the City Art Centre, but her interests widened while researching her doctoral thesis in the early 1980s on the pioneer Arts and Crafts artist Phoebe Anna Traquair, whose work she has since championed. During the 1990s she taught design history and theory at Edinburgh College of Art, while continuing to pursue freelance curatorship internationally. Her exhibitions included Glasgow 1900: Art & Design at the Rijksmuseum Vincent Van Gogh in Amsterdam in 1992. Since 2000, when appointed an Honorary Senior Research Fellow at Glasgow University, she has worked as an independent art and design historian.
