Interior Decorating in Nineteenth-Century France : The Visual Culture of a New Profession, Paperback / softback Book

Interior Decorating in Nineteenth-Century France : The Visual Culture of a New Profession Paperback / softback

Part of the Studies in Design and Material Culture series

Description

This book explores the beginnings of the interior design profession in nineteenth-century France.

Drawing on a wealth of visual sources, from collecting and advice manuals to pattern books and department store catalogues, it demonstrates how new forms of print media were used to 'sell' the idea of the unified interior as a total work of art, enabling the profession of interior designer to take shape.

In observing the dependence of the trades on the artistic and public visual appeal of their work, Interior decorating in nineteenth-century France establishes crucial links between the fields of art history, material and visual culture, and design history. -- .
