Product Description

The Art of Arthur and Lucia Mathews is the most comprehensive Mathews retrospective ever published. A thorough overview of the decorative arts as they evolved in California, it also surveys the Mathewses' predecessors, their contemporaries, and the artists whose work they influenced. Harvey L. Jones, a senior curator at the Oakland Museum, ably reviews the Mathewses' exuberant lives, work, and influence on the California style; the foreword is by a state librarian emeritus and professor of history at USC; and an essay by an expert on American decorative arts and crafts helps to put the Mathewses in the context of their time and place.
