- Full Description
Handsomely illustrated in both black and white and full color, this traces the history of the Southhampton's Central School of Art, which, like The Art Institute in the U.S., was instrumental in developing educational theories, gathered great teachers and spun out brilliant students who would have far-reaching effects on the development of arts and crafts in Britain. Book illustrators Robert Gibbings and John Farleigh are among the noted artists produced. Illustration, ceramics, jewelry, textile, poster and advertising designers were taught here who would dramatically influence 20th century arts.
Ten separate chapters by ten renowned experts explore the various crafts that came out of this amazing school.
Derek Birdsall, Alan Fletcher /strong> and Colin Forbes are three more top-of-their-craft creators who graduated from the Central School. Also featured are the staff and students of the school, such as Terrance Conran, Margaret Pikington, Eduardo Paolozzi and Posy Simonds; the Bauhaus movement and shops such as Liberty's, whose influence both in spreading the school's philosophy and artistry through the high street has been considerable.
