Synopsis: This text examines the life and work of British architect C.F.A. Voysey. Voysey was one of the most successful and renowned British architects from the 1890s until the outbreak of World War I. His white-rendered houses with stone window dressings and sweeping green slate roofs combined clarity and simplicity with a sensual appreciation of natural materials. Voysey's belief that the house should embody Quietness in a storm, economy of upkeep, evidence of protection, harmony with surroundings, absence of dark passages placed him at the heart of the Arts and Crafts movement, while the elongated simplicity of his furniture together with the fluid, undulating curves of his decorative design made him a formative influence on Mackintosh, Van de Velde and the Art Nouveau style.

About the Author: Wendy Hitchmough is a historian specializing in architecture of the late-nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Book Description Phaidon Press Ltd. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, C.F.A.Voysey (New edition), Wendy Hitchmough, From the 1890s until the outbreak of World War I, C F A Voysey (1857-1914) was one of the most successful and renowned British Arts and Crafts architects. His elegant, white-rendered houses with stone window dressings and sweeping green-slate roofs combined clarity with a sensual appreciation of natural materials. A designer of all things domestic, as well as an architect, he was often involved in every aspect of a house's interior from wallpaper, curtains and furniture to fire grates. Moreover, the fluid curves of his decorative designs and the elongated simplicity of his furniture prove him to be a vital historical link between the Arts and Crafts and the Modern movements. The first definitive account of Voysey's architectural career, this book combines contemporary sources - photographs, quotations, original wallpaper designs and watercolour perspectives - with specially commissioned photography of his houses.
