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.
