Exhibition curated by Edward N. Kaufman, Assistant Professor of Art, and three of his students.
This exhibit focuses on the many aspects of the house as it is presented in nineteenth- and early twentieth-century English and American books. The exhibit traces discussions of architectural style, construction, household taste, domestic reform, town planning, industrial housing, tourism, and the treatment of the house in fiction. Theoretical and artistic works are juxtaposed with practical manuals, catalogues, and magazines which together represent people's changing domestic dreams-and their economic, social, and political dimensions-in the beginning of the twentieth century.
