Easily the most recognizable architectural style in America, with
its brick or shingled facades trimmed in white and ornamented with
restrained classical detail, the Colonial Revival emerged in the
late nineteenth century and is still the basis for classical design
today. "The American Style "surveys the evolution of the Colonial
Revival from the 1890s to the present, focusing on the period from
1900 to the 1930s when New York City was a major center of
architecture and decorative arts. Leading architects, including
McKim Mead & White, Delano & Aldrich, and Mott B. Schmidt,
used its vocabulary for private residences and clubs as well as
institutional buildings--banks, schools, churches, and museums.
Richly illustrated with archival photographs and objects from the
collections of the Museum of the City of New York and other major
institutions, "The American Style" will be the definitive record of
an enduring aesthetic in architecture and decorative arts.
