A lavishly illustrated history of the opulent art and architecture of the Gilded Age. The Gilded Age (1865–1918) saw the sudden rise of America s first High Society, including such prominent families as the Astors, Whitneys, and Vanderbilts. As an aristocracy based on fortunes recently acquired, these families endeavored to live like Europe s blue-blooded nobility, shedding Puritan restraint as they joyously flaunted their new wealth―especially where their homes were concerned.  They erected French chateaus and Italian palazzos on New York s Fifth Avenue, at Newport, and elsewhere, often taking inspiration from Parisian styles of the Second Empire. They rejected more modest American styles just as they rejected middle-class society, and for interior decoration they turned to such artisans as Tiffany, Herter Brothers, and Allard s of Paris. Immensely readable and illuminated with 250 stunning color and black-and-white illustrations, this is the fascinating story of America s first millionaire society, the way they lived and partied, and the lush artistic and cultural legacy they established. 100 color, 150 black-and-white
