About

Highly important work by, Lockwood de Forest (June 8, 1850 – April 3, 1932). De Forest was a key figure of the American Aesthetic Movement who, as the designer, introduced the East Indian craft revival to America during the Gilded Age. As a young man de Forest first worked as a painter, taking the lessons of his Hudson River School contemporaries. In 1879 de Forest began his career in the decorative arts working at Associated Artists along with Louis Comfort Tiffany, before starting his own decorating business that he ran for thirty years. Upon his retirement de Forest moved to Santa Barbara where he returned to his love of painting while still taking design commissions from local patrons.
