The elegant houses designed by Charles Sumner Greene and Henry Mather Greene have come to define the Arts and Crafts movement in the United States. A seamless fusion of simplicity and sophisticated detail with meticulous attention to building materials and natural surroundings, each Greene and Greene house is a model of timeless home design. Greene & Greene: Masterworks is the first book to present the brothers' most important works, complete with color photographs. Greene & Greene surveys twenty-five masterpieces produced by the firm from the turn of the century to the twenties. Arts and Crafts expert Bruce Smith leads you through the details - entrances, art glass, lighting, staircases, wood joinery, fireplaces, and more - that illustrate the evolution of the Greenes' hallmark style. Alexander Vertikoff's photographs capture the houses' formal grace and exquisite colors. Including an insightful foreword by the Gamble House director, Edward R. Bosley, Greene & Greene celebrates the landmark architectural vision of Charles and Henry Greene.Biografía del autor:
