American Arts & Crafts Movement Collections
The Foundation's collection of more than 2,000 objects represents the full range of decorative and fine arts produced by individual artists, craftsmen, and companies of the period. There are outstanding, rare, and one-of-a-kind examples of furniture, pottery, ceramic tiles and architectural faience, metalwork, woodblocks, fine art, lighting, textiles, and stained glass created during the early 20th century. There are also remarkable photographs and photogravures from noted artists from the Pictorialist and Photo Secessionist movement, including well-known names such as Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Steichen, and Alvin Langdon Coburn.
Examples of artists, craftsmen, and companies represented in the collection include Gustav Stickley, the Stickley Brothers, Charles Rohlfs, the Byrdcliffe Colony, the Roycrofters, Dirk Van Erp, William Grueby, the Saturday Evening Girls, Rookwood, Tiffany, Newcomb College, Marblehead, Frederick Hurten Rhead and Adelaide Alsop Robineau, Frederick E. Walrath, Overbeck Sisters, Margaret Patterson, and Arthur Wesley Dow.
In keeping with the Two Red Roses Foundation's mission to continually add to the collection by seeking the very best objects the market has to offer, an aggressive acquisition program is in place. We invite private individuals and collectors, museums, and dealers who may be interested in discussing the offering of specific works of interest to the Foundation to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-727-943-9900.
