Details: Product description A contemporary of William Morris and an influential member of the Aesthetic Movement, Christopher Dresser (1834-1904) took full advantage of the innovations offered by the new industrial world of the nineteenth century, and by 1870 had established the most prominent independent design practice in Britain. This highly illustrated monograph charts his life in textiles and assesses his sizeable contribution to the decorative arts tradition. About the Author Harry Lyons's passion for Dresser goes back many years: he has searched out a huge range of previously unrecognised Dresser designs. He has frequently lectured and written on Dresser, and held a ground-breaking exhibition of the designer's work at the New Century Gallery in 1999. He was also a major contributor to the Cooper Hewitt 2004 Dresser exhibition catalogue, in New York and at the V&A, London.
