American Furniture: The Federal Period in the Henry Francis Du Pont Winterthur Museum (Winterthur Book)
The incomparable Winterthur Museum collection of beautiful and distinct Federal period American furniture is described and illustrated in this book, first published in 1978. Todays printing technology makes this book even more stunning, presenting beautiful photos of 491 pieces. The text explores the maker, place of origin, size, materials, dimensions, details of design and, most importantly, an evaluation of the merits of each piece. It is a history of the entire process of furniture making in Federal America. This is a classic encyclopedia for Federal period furniture enthusiasts, and a mine of information for everyone interested in the social and cultural history of the formative years of the United States.
The Henry R. Luce Center for the Study of American Art
The Henry R. Luce Center for the Study of American Art makes available for inspection those American fine art and decorative art objects that are not currently on view in the Museum galleries and period rooms or on loan to other institutions. The combination of works of art and research facilities makes the Luce Center a focal point for educational programs in The American Wing, home of the Departments of American Paintings and Sculpture and American Decorative Arts.
Objects in the Luce Center are arranged by material (oil paintings, sculpture, furniture and woodwork, glass, ceramics, and metalwork) and within these categories are organized by form and chronology. With the exception of those objects particularly sensitive to light (such as works on paper and textiles), most of the reserve items are on constant view.
As the labeling is minimal for individual items on view, visitors are encouraged to use the computerized catalogue of the collection, which includes information on all objects in the Departments of American Paintings and Sculpture and American Decorative Arts (not just those on view in the Luce Center).
The Henry R. Luce Center for the Study of American Art is made possible by the Henry Luce Foundation, Inc. Generous support was also provided by The Pew Charitable Trusts. Additional grants were received from the National Endowments for the Humanities and the Arts.
The Luce Center is open to all visitors during the Museum’s public hours.
D.J. De Pree, head of the Herman Miller Furniture Co. in 1930, was convinced that the American furniture industry was out of touch with contemporary American life, especially in the face of the growing Great Depression. In 1931 he asked Gilbert Rohde, whose concepts were based on Bauhaus theory and his own philosophy, to design for Herman Miller. D.J. De Pree was also deeply committed to integrity in craftsmanship and manufacturing as well as design.
I want to thank srk1941 for the information that he added concerning Herman Miller and Gilbert Rohde. He has a fantastic collection on Rohde and the Herman Miller company.
I still wonder if this was a period piece produced by Herman Miller.
