CDR-1353: SR Set: Decorative Arts in Western Culture

Great art can teach us so much about technique, skill, patience and the value of mentors and/or masters who pass on their skill. Appreciating great art includes the realization that a high value was placed on supporting craftsmanship and expressions of individual creativity and ingenuity. In viewing these beautiful objects gathered in this Set--randomly selected from a wide selection--we pay homage to those artist who worked so diligently on these precious objects and whose efforts are not often acknowledged in the standard art history repertoire.
