Greene & Greene: Masterworks

Greene & Greene: Masterworks Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the first decades of the 20th century, Charles Sumner Greene and Henry Mather Greene almost single-handedly defined the Arts and Crafts aesthetic in America as the architectural firm Greene and Greene. The only full-color survey of the firm's greatest works-including several newly restored to their original grandeur-Greene and Greene reveals the consummate artistry that ensured the brothers' place among the most brilliant of American architects. An in-depth tour of 25 magnificent homes, this book examines the creative evolution of their style. From the Gamble House in Pasadena, Californiawhose director contributes the book's forewordto lesser-known gems throughout the state, Greene and Greene is a wonderful introduction to the brothers' work, and a warm homage to the charms of this refined domestic architecture.
