The “fine” art produced between 1895 and 1938, the years of the Roycroft, may have been the most creative and diverse period of art ever: in Europe, Impressionism, Post-impressionism, Fauvism, Cubism, Orphism, Futurism, Suprematism, Dada, Surrealism; and in America, late Hudson River, Tonalism, The Ashcan School, Synchromism, Regionalists, Modernist Abstraction—all provide rich and fascinating material. Photography and printing greatly impacted how art functioned in terms of content and social reach. Illustration bloomed in the service of storytelling and constitutes a particular branch of art. The rise of museums in this period reflects the value of art as a thing-in-itself.
