A brilliant survey of four centuries of Western design history that ranges from the High Renaissance in Italy to the origins of the modern movement in 1870. Thornton himself refers to it as “a straightforward account of how style developed in the decorative arts between 1470 and 1870. It is primarily written for students of design history. . . .”
