On spine and cover: Art and Life on the Upper Mississippi, 1890-1915: Minnesota 1900. "Examines advances in architecture, design, and painting in a region widely recognized for its contribution to the Arts and Crafts and Prairie School movements. It features the work of many well-known American artists, including the architects Cass Gilbert, Harvey Ellis, Frank Lloyd Wright, Purcell and Elmslie, ceramicist and Arts and Crafts philosopher Ernest Batchelder, and the painters Homer Dodge Martin and Alexander Fournier. The six essays [written by Michael Conforti, Alan K. Lathrop, Jennifer Komar, Thomas O'Sullivan, Marcia G. Anderson, Mark Hammons, Louise Lincoln and Paulette Fairbanks Molin] also focus on the ceramic and metalwork production of the Handicraft Guild of Minneapolis, the Craftshouse of John Bradstreet, and American Indian art and artifacts created both for native and white use at the time."
