Arts and Crafts Movement

The website 'Arts and Crafts Movement, 1880-1920 in Europe and America' is a large online exhibition from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. It contains details of the movement in the British Isles, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Norway, Sweden, Belgium, and the United States of America. The British pages contain short texts by Wendy Kaplan on 'Early Sources and Ideals', on 'The Guild of Handicraft', and short notes on the movement in Ireland and Scotland. These texts are illustrated. There are similar illustrated texts for each of the other countries covered.
