Synopsis: At the start of the sixteenth century, the great centres of European design and decorative art, as of wealth and power, lay to the south and to the east; it was beautiful things created in the workshops of Venice and Florence, Antwerp and Paris that were coveted in Britain, not those made in London or Edinburgh. Two hundred years later all this had changed. Britain was well on the way to becoming Europe's most successful commercial economy and British design and decorative art were no longer provincial. From furniture to fabrics, prints to pottery, British designers and craftspeople began to match their most eminent European rivals. Lavishly illustrated and unmatched in its coverage, this book explores design and the decorative arts from a number of points of view. It assesses their place in the wider history of Tudor and Stuart Britain. It examines style, the question of how things looked. It asks who led taste; who decided what was to be considered beautiful, fashionable and desirable. It looks at how fashionable things - from houses to clothing - were used. It asks what was new, examining new products and innovations in the ways they were made. Together, the chapters provide an indispensable resource for the study of the visual culture of the Tudor and Stuart period.

About the Author: Michael Snodin is Head of the Designs Section of the V&A's Word & Image Department.

John Styles is Head of Postgraduate Studies at the V&A, with particular responsibility for the V&A/Royal College of Art History of Design course. He has published widely on manufacturing, consumption and design in eighteenth-century England, and was historical advisor to the V&A's British Galleries team.

Book Description Zu Beginn des 16. Jahrhunderts lagen die beiden Zentren der dekorativen Kunst - und auch des Wohlstandes und der Macht - im Süden und im Westen Europas, die schönsten Zeugnisse der Angewandten Kunst stammen aus Venedig und Florenz oder aus Antwerpen und Paris. Innerhalb der folgenden zweihundert Jahre hatte sich das Blatt gewendet und die britische Design-Produktion hatte einen deutlichen Aufschwung erfahren. Von Möbeln über Textilien bis zu Drucken und Töpferei war »made in Britain« ein gefragtes Label für gelungenes Design. Dieses reich illustrierte Buch untersucht die Geschichte des bei uns vor allem in der Architektur als Tudor-Stil bekannten Bewegung und den Stil des Hauses Stuart und behandelt sämtliche Aspekte vom Wohnhaus zum Kleidungsstück. Worin genau das Neuartige an dieser Stilauffassung bestand und wie und wo gefertigt wurde, lernt der Leser hier auch und kann sich darüberhinaus eine Stück Kulturgeschichte der Tudor-Zeit erschließen. (Text engl.) 24,5 x 24,5 cm, 168 Seiten, zahlr. farb. Abb., pb. Bookseller Inventory # 678767
