Romance of the Mission

( 1 )

Overview

Mission style conjures up the cultures of Morocco and North Africa, Spain, and Mexico. It blends seamlessly with the artistic genius of southwestern, Native American, and a utopian Californian vision. In looking at the style, it is difficult to remember that the Pueblo Indians first crafted expressions of Spanish Mission architecture under the supervision of Franciscan friars in the 1600s.

Overview

Mission style conjures up the cultures of Morocco and North Africa, Spain, and Mexico. It blends seamlessly with the artistic genius of southwestern, Native American, and a utopian Californian vision. In looking at the style, it is difficult to remember that the Pueblo Indians first crafted expressions of Spanish Mission architecture under the supervision of Franciscan friars in the 1600s.
Even if the Pueblos didn't recognize the timeless beauty they created, we recognize it now, and this book artfully puts it into perspective. Picking up where Elmo Baca's Rio Grande High Style left off, this book focuses solely on Mission style and goes into vivid detail both historical and current. The stylish interiors, beautiful gardens, solid furnishings, and graceful architecture continue to make an impact today.

Author Biography:Elmo Baca is the author of Rio Grande High Style: Furniture Craftsman, Native American Style, Santa Fe Design, and Mabel's Santa Fe and Taos. A historic preservationist, he has been directly involved in the rehabilitation of twenty buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Currently director of Community Development for the State of New Mexico, he is a frequent contributor to West, Southwest Art, and New Mexico magazines.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Baca (Rio Grande High Style: Furniture Craftsmen, Gibbs Smith, 1995) gives an overview of the Mission Style of architecture and interior design in the United States, from its roots in Moorish Spain through the classic missions of New Mexico and California to the contemporary style of Neo-Mission. The book focuses on examples of the Mission style in residential interiors and concludes with sources for furniture, accessories, and the like. Though a more detailed explanation of the turn-of-the-century styles of Mission Revival, Peublo Revival, and the more elaborate Spanish Colonial Revival is needed to distinguish one from the other, this is a good resource for large and regional interior design collections and a colorful companion to Karen J. Weitze's California Mission Revival (Hennessey & Ingalls, 1984).
