Описание: Following several years of extensive research, conservation, and photography, Saint Louis Art Museum's major 2016 exhibition highlights 50 carpets and two Persian pleasure tents assembled by one of the most important early twentieth-century American carpet collectors, James F. Ballard. The unique contents of the collection, outstanding quality of many of the rugs, and detailed technical content make this book a major contribution to the study of Islamic textiles and the field of Islamic art history as a whole. The compelling visual nature of the pieces will appeal to art historians, rug collectors, and the general public alike. The book includes an essay about James Ballard as a collector by Thomas J. Farnham. A second essay by Walter B. Denny introduces the general topic of rug varieties in the Ballard Collection, placing the collection in a larger art historical and historiographic context. The textiles featured in the exhibition are organized according to geographical origin and style, with brief introductions by Denny that provide more detailed art historical context for each group. All items have full catalogue entries, full color illustrations, and front and back details showing technical features. Ballard Collection rugs in the museum's inventory not exhibited are included with a color reproduction and technical data. Contents: Chronology; Ballard the Collector; The Ballard Collection in Context; A short Note on Carpet Technique; Catalogue; Appendix; Endnotes; Bibliography.

Описание: This important new reference carefully presents exquisite glass items made at the Steuben Glass Company, in Corning, New York, during Frederick Carders founding and long tenure, from 1903 to 1954. It features a scholars detailed text and more than 800 exquisite color photographs of glass types he made over this period. Includes delicate Aurenes, Cintras, Intarsia, Cire Perdue, and Diatreta examples. Three men who pioneered Steuben Glass are revealed: Paul Vickers Gardner, Robert Rockwell, and Walter Dorwin Teague. Histories of Carders work with many companies, such as DeVilbiss atomizers, Alvin silver, Oscar Bach, and Roycroft ceramics, are discussed. Sections are devoted to exhibitions held in Mr. Carders honor, reflecting his history at Steuben Glass and never-before-seen show pieces. Also, there are works made for companies, such as Corning Glass, that dealt with architectural glass, which have never been discussed in print before. Robert Mueller has provided his passionate and respectful response to each piece shown, in the context of the founders own intentions. This book is a unique treasure combining original scholarship and first-hand experience about one of Americas well-known business successes.
