9780300060133: Architecture in France in the Eighteenth Century (The Yale University Press Pelican History of Art)

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.
