movement The Arts
and Crafts Movement in the United States came out of the decorative styles and philosophies of several countries, including England, Scotland and Austria and culminated in the U.S. between 1900-1910. The movement began in England as a reaction to the Industrial Revolution, and that era's emphasis on mass factory production as opposed to a focus on the handcrafting of objects and the importance of the craftsperson as in previous eras. The information we are presenting here is but a very small portion of what is available on the A&C Movement in the United States.
