Overview

Art and architecture historian Jeffery joined Christie's auction house in 1992 where he has developed specialist sales and written books about specific genres of art. Here he narratives and illustrates the 19th-century rise of craftsmanship to challenge the Industrial Revolution and stop the advance of the machine age, without actually calling the artisans luddites. He looks at precursors and an early style, American and European styles, ceramics and glass, furniture and textiles, and metalwork. The photographs are legion and colorful.
