Editorial Reviews

Architecture Today
“Beaux Arts take on modern classical architecture—now seen as a broad church including modern masters such as Loos and Wright.”
Clem Labine's Period Homes
“That this architect is one of the last graduates of the Ecole des
Beaux-Arts…should warrant this particular scrapbook a welcome place on the bookshelves of those teaching, working in or interested in the continuance of the Classical architectural tradition...[A]n armchair grand tour, in the company of an astute tour guide.”
Apollo: The International Magazine of Art and Antiques Overview
“[D]elightful: . . . Thoughtful, intelligently illustrated, confidently argued, and very beautiful. . . . [A] most welcome and timely volume.”
