Book Description

30 Jun 2003 Glasgow School of Art
Robert Stewart was one of the foremost British designers of the second half of the 20th century. He and Lucienne Day dominated the design field at that time with Libertys and Heals having a pact that Stewart would design exclusively for Libertys while Day designed for Heals. Stewart's time was divided between teaching at the Glasgow School of Art and producing innovative designs for textiles and ceramics. This book is a celebration of Bob Stewart - his life and achievements - as well as a fascinating snapshot of the British design world in the decades after World War II. This is an important work that will bring to public notice the master who, along with Lucienne Day, dazzled the design world in the 1950s and 1960s.

4.0 out of 5 stars Robert Stewart 31 Mar 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Comprehensive and interesting exploration of Stewart's life and work with some interesting plates etc. However, I would have liked to know more about his textile work for Liberty of London. There were some gaps but overall a worthy buy for the enthusiast.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true treasure of a book 12 Jun 2013
By Kate Martin - Published on Amazon.com
I really can't believe that I am the first person to review this truly lovely book. It is obvious to me that the author had a great appreciation for the art of Robert Stewart. He was born in Scotland and was drawing from a very early age. He went to the Glasgow School of Art where he studied art and textiles. He had a traveling scholarship that brought him to France, Switzerland, and Italy. He designed for Liberty of London from the early 1950's to the mid 1960's. He had many commissions for ceramic murals and tapestries. I am very interested in textiles and Robert Stewart made some beautiful screen printed fabrics. He was a very prolific artist who dabbled in many different areas. He worked with ceramics, fabric, needlework, wood, silk screening, gouache, and many other mediums. This book is such a constant inspiration to me. When l look at his work it seems to me that every line is exactly where it should be. I see such confidence in his work. To me it could not be more perfect. I love the pictures the artist chocie for this book. She did a great job picking out work from the different years that Robert Stewart worked. If you enjoy the midcentury designs of Alexander Girard you will be equally impressed with the work of Robert Stewart.
5.0 out of 5 stars Scottish Mid-Century Modern! Who knew??? 9 Sep 2013
By F. Hanafin Elliott - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
When you think of Mid-Century Modern Design, Scotland is definitely not the first country that springs to mind! This book is extremely well-researched, and beautifully illustrated. A fine introduction to a talented Scotsman who is not well-known in the U.S. marketplace...and a true gift to art history.
