This anthology gathers together the most significant writings on the theory of the decorative arts from the mid-eighteenth century to the 1940s. With selections by architects, designers, and critics as well as sociologists and historians, the volume reconstructs the historical debates over how to define the decorative arts and distinguish them from the fine arts-issues still argued today. Published in association with the Bard Graduate Center for Studies in the Decorative Arts, New York
