The Arts and Crafts Movement developed in England during the second half of the 19th century. Its champions embraced skilled craftsmanship and harmonious design, in part as a reaction to the rise of mass-production and industrialization. Cooper Hewitt's collection includes works by many of the movement's protagonists active in the United Kingdom and the United States, including William Morris, Walter Crane, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Christopher Dresser, and Frank Lloyd Wright.
