The tremendous variety of subjects extends to street scenes by Toulouse Lautrec and van Gogh, episodes from literature envisioned by Rossetti, Burne-Jones, and Millais, and decorations by Crane and Morris. A visual treasure trove and valuable reference, this volume will serve as an enduring source of instruction and inspiration for artists of all skill levels.

Описание: This profusely illustrated volume by a noted British architect and authority in the field focuses on monumental architecture constructed from 1730 to 1875, a period the author feels embodies the best in neoclassical architecture. Included are outstanding structures built in Great Britain and Ireland during four different phases - Roman Palladian (1730-1780), Greco-Roman (1780-1820), Greek (1820-1840), and neo-Grec and Italian (1840-1875). Beginning with the achievements of the great Georgian architect Sir William Chambers, and extending to the work of such major Victorian classicists as C. R. Cockerell and Harry Lonsdale Elmes, the buildings pictured and described here include a roster of masterpieces: The Customs House, Dublin; The Bank of England, Liverpool; Newgate Prison, London; The British Museum, London; The National Gallery, Edinburgh; The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge; St. George's Hall in Liverpool; the Landsdown Tower, Bath, and many more. Over 175 line drawings and halftones illustrate Sir Albert's detailed, perceptive and informative text. Enhanced with a new Introduction by H. Stafford Bryant, this classic study belongs in the libraries of architects, students of architectural history, and interested general readers.
