DANIEL COTTIER'S AESTHETIC OF BEAUTY 2: Cottier in the UK and in the US with Andrew Montana

Wednesday 30 Mar 2022, 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM


Paralleling the career of William Morris, Daniel Cottier was an exponent of the Aesthetic, 'House Beautiful' movement. An enterprising Scotsman, he established decorating branches in London in the 1860s and in New York in 1873 the same year as the Sydney branch opened. This lecture introduces you to Cottier's work in the UK and in the US, focusing on his painted interiors, stained glass, furniture, ceramics, and his picture dealing activities.
