Before modern day designers and decorators were part of the mainstream, Russel Wright’s table ware, serving pieces and furniture were found in homes across the U.S. Living with Good Design will trace the development of Wright’s career as the creator of a new American way of living in the mid 20th century.
Any and all art works with a sense of design fall under the decorativearts and are the wonderful things that we live with and look at every day.
For this very reason, the field of decorativearts history is enormously exciting: the significant objects that demand attention offer extraordinary opportunities for graduate students to contribute to and define a bourgeoning field of scholarship.
Traditionally, study of the decorativearts has been dominated by matters of connoisseurship, material production, and provenance, all of which are rightly integral to the subject.
The MA in the History of DecorativeArts is awarded upon completion of 48 credits with a minimum grade point average of 3.0 and successful completion of the Masters Examination or Thesis.
