Thus the foundation stone for the ascent of the artfully engraved pieces of wood was laid.
Thus the foundation stone for the ascent of the artfully engraved pieces of wood was laid. The carving of pieces of furniture was not regarded as unsuitable for a woman, since she only had to carve the parts - panelling, columns, tracks - which were put together into pieces of music. Since it did not take exercise, it did not conflict with the concept of woman as tender and fragile.
Interest in woodcarving goes back to the aesthetic movement in England. This was the first year that the concept of a nice environment was combined with a good standard of living and suitable for everyone, not just the élite. "Whereas such an approach was disdained by more dedicated female performers, domestic culture offered the possibility for them to personalise their own home with their own work.
In the nineteenth-century the significance that Americans attach to the household position of the woman cannot be overstated. "It was made possible by the example and training of three expatriates: Henry Lindley Fry (1827-1895), his sons William Henry Fry (1830-1929) and Benn Pitman (1822-1895). "When Longworth's daugther got hired the Frys to redecorate the inside of her house.
The job was so costly this year that it took four years for the Frys to finish. Throughout this period Longworth gathered a number of boyfriends, most of them wives, to see the craft and advancement of the family. They were so enthusiastic that they pleaded with Fry to teach them. The Frys started in 1872 with carving courses.
"Henry Fry said: "I was happy to have the chance to test my opinion that in woodcarving, woman have many benefits over men, especially when the depicted items are supposed to be a reference to the realm of the outdoors. "Usually a woman has a finer organised tool in the hands of man, has a finer feeling and I think she works for less dirty purposes.
" Most of the groups were made up of high society females dedicated to the arts, confirming the idea that the decoration of the house was not only the work of the woman, but also her responsibilities. Pitman also founded the woodcarving section at the School of Design, which was loved by the female overcoat.
Though both Pitman and the Frys hugged the aesthetic movement, the Frys were business people, while Pitman favored doctrine and the teach. For Longworth, this is shown in the coat that the Frys engraved with a vine design in honour of Nicholas Longworth, who launched viticulture in the United States.
"Many of the woodcarvings contain tendrils, sheets and geometrical edges. Once aroused, the wish for artfully crafted furnishings seemed inexhaustible. Females began to see carving as a profitable occupation and as an alternatives to school. This is the beginning of a new period for them, which clearly and truly defines the feminist dictates.
From the early 1870s to the end of the 20s, only about 5,000 to 10,000 sculptures were made. Since the woodcarvers were their own customers, only a few of them were sold. As the bulk commodity became available for the household, the ladies went from the producer to the consumer and took the responsability to buy nice things for their home.
