- Pub. Date:
- Yale University Press
The eighteenth century was a time of supreme achievement in French architecture. The buildings of the period are distinguished by restraint and proportion, grace and practicality - qualities that influenced architecture across Europe. This handsome book surveys developments from the final years of Louis XIV and the lasting influence of Jules-Hardouin Mansart to the dramatic fantasies of Boullee. It analyses not only the buildings, but also their interiors, and the contemporary theoretical literature.
