Synopsis:

Newly Available from Yale

 

This handsome book showcases the Metropolitan Museum’s superb collection of 151 American quilts and coverlets. First published in 1990 and revised in 2007 to feature 32 new acquisitions and updated scholarship, this volume chronicles the development of quilt and coverlet production in the United States from the 18th through the 20th centuries, provides a glimpse into the lives of the makers and recipients of these pieces, and discusses their emergence as works of art.

 

Notable pieces include the Phebe Warner and the Baltimore Presentation coverlets, Amish, Crazy, and Honeycomb quilts that exemplify achievement in abstract and geometric patterns, along with the Adeline Harris Sears Autograph Quilt, a memorial to the greatest politicians, composers, authors, and thinkers of the mid-19th century. Each work is catalogued with a description and essential information on materials, condition, publications, and references. Also included is an illustrated survey of materials and techniques used in the creation of these works.

About the Author: Amelia Peck is Marica F. Vilcek Curator of American Decorative Arts and Cynthia V. A. Schaffner is Research Associate, Department of American Decorative Arts at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Elena Phipps is Senior Museum Conservator in the Department of Textile Conservation at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Book Description MQ Publications, 2007. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. The Metropolitan Museum of Art's collection of American quilts and coverlets includes many little-known masterpieces of the genre that transcend the category of domestic craft and are works of fine art in their own right. This volume presents the entire collection of 119 quilts and coverlets in the Museum's possession, many of them published here for the first time. Seventy-one highlights are featured, each illustrated with a full-page color plate. There are also full-page color details of many works that emphasize their aesthetic appeal and technical prowess. These highlights are arranged chronologically in four sections, with texts that provide a history of the development of quilt and coverlet making in the United States from the eighteenth through the twentieth century. Methods and materials used in their making and histories of the makers' families are also discussed. 320 pp. **Due to the weight of this book, international shipping will incur an additional charge.**.
