Published by the Cooper-Hewitt Museum, distributed by University of Washington Press, 1987. A comprehensive survey (which served as the catalogue for a traveling exhibition of the same name) of American art pottery companies, small pottery studios, independent decorators and artist-potters working from the mid-1870s to the 1930s, most of whom drew their design inspiration from the freedom, humanism and naturalistic style so typified by the Arts and Crafts Movement. The seventy-five examples presented from the Goodman collection of the Cooper-Hewitt Museum, including those by Newcomb, Rookwood, Weller, Grueby, Chelsea, Van Bringle, Teco, Tiffany, George Ohr and others, trace the historical development of this American art form. A Bibliography is included at the back. Highly recommended reference for American art pottery enthusiasts and collectors. Large softcover 9" x 11" x .5", 144 pp. Illustrated throughout in captioned b/w and color plates. Text in English.
