Description
Exquisitely photographed, this catalogue highlights 84 exemplary pieces of American studio furniture from the Smithsonian's Renwick Gallery. These are true works of art as well as functional pieces, from such artists and craftsmen as Wharton Esherick, the patriarch of studio furniture, and Wendle Castle, who created one of the Renwick's most popular pieces, the trompe l'oeil Ghost Clock. Here too are Judy McKee's Monkey Settee, Sam Maloof's Rocking Chair, John Cederquist's Ghost Boy, and George Nakashima's Conoid Bench.

"[Oscar] Fitzgerald offers a long-overdue portfolio showcasing the Renwick Gallery's entire 84-piece collection of crafted American furniture. This critical resource will serve as a foundation for the study and historic preservation of 20th-century American furniture makers' work. Highly recommended."Choice
