Description

Traditional Spanish New Mexican furniture can best be characterized as simple, having straight lines and good, honest proportions, all of which give these pieces a particular type of dignity. As is true of other handmade objects in a given society, furniture made in New Mexico mirrored the lives of New Mexicans in the 18th and 19th centuries--isolation and a rugged existence. The earliest furniture was made for churches and a few rich families. Even well into the 19th century, the average home was devoid of pieces considered common today: chairs, tables and beds. The author regards the traditional period in Spanish New Mexican furniture to begin about 1776 and extend until almost 1900. The pieces in this book illustrate the important contributions made by the Spanish in the 18th and 19th centuries to this form of the decorative arts.
