News-Antique.com - Nov 30,-0001 - Archibald Knox, (1864-1933) was perhaps the most fluid and creative of the Arts & Crafts designers. His wonderfully evocative designs harking to an ancient Celtic harmony yet touching a most modern and stimulating sense within the viewer.
On this site I have presented an overview of the life, history and works of Archibald Knox, and would be very happy to hear from any collectors and historians with further information and insights.
I have many original designs by Knox for sale, and we offer a large range of his designs replicated as wallpapers, fabrics and metalware. We are always interested in purchasing similar items. We also offer a listing and search facility for collectors and dealers.
Archibald Knox is one of the most gifted, and under-appreciated, British designers of the last century. Although he is generally recognized as the creative force behind the vastly successful Celtic Revival style in silver, pewter, fabrics, ceramics, and jewelry marketed by Liberty & Co. at the turn of the century, and as one of Britain's great early modernist designers, a more complete picture of Knox the artist has yet to emerge. This present volume, the culmination of more than ten years of passionate involvement with Knox's life and work, is my attempt to fill in this important gap - to establish Knox's central role in the evolution of British and Modern design, and to shed some light on the influences that shaped his life and his career.
This site would not have been possible without the guidance, co-operation and assistance of Dr. Steve Martin, the World's foremost authority and leading collector of Archibald Knox designs, and author of the 2 leading books, 'Archibald Knox' published by ArtMedia.
