Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin was one of the most influential architects and designers of the nineteenth century, a man whose ideas and design principles were adopted and developed by followers as diverse as William Morris and Frank Lloyd Wright. As an architect, Pugin created cathedrals, churches, colleges, convents, and a wide range of domestic buildings whose form and structure changed the nature of architecture in his era. As a designer, he was responsible for the Gothic Revival, the most popular decorative form in Britain and around the world, and he was the creator of stunning furniture and woodwork; silver, metalwork, and jewelry; pottery and tiles; textiles and wallpapers; and books. This book, written by ten eminent scholars, presents a comprehensive picture of Pugin, his achievements, and his times.
This beautiful book is the catalogue for an exhibition on Pugin at The Bard Graduate Center for Studies in the Decorative Arts, New York.
