9781848021020: John Nash: Architect of the Picturesque

John Nash is universally recognised as one of the most important architects of late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century Britain. As the man responsible for the creation of Regent Street and Regent’s Park, he left an indelible mark on the West End of London, and his two most famous buildings the Brighton Pavilion and Buckingham Palace are crucial to any understanding of the monarchy in the age of the Prince Regent (later George IV). Yet, even before he became involved in these ambitious projects, he made a major contribution to domestic architecture through the design of a series of stylistically varied villas, country houses and cottages in which he applied the doctrines of the Picturesque with an inventiveness and panache that has rarely been surpassed. No complete study of Nash’s work has been published since Sir John Summerson’s The Life and Work of John Nash, Architect in 1980. Since then, new scholarship has revised some of Summerson’s conclusions and cast new light on several important aspects of Nash’s work. The aim of this book which originated in a symposium held by the Georgian Group in September 2009 is to bring together this recent scholarship in a single volume, and so bring this most engaging of architects to a new generation of readers.

Review:

'Underpinned with a great deal of new research, this book offers a refreshing reappraisal of Nash and authoritatively sets out his impressive architectural achievement' The book is outstandingly well illustrated, with a full range of colour photographs, numerous historic photographs and plans from the archives of English Heritage, and liverla use of engravings published in the 1820s and 30s which presented Nash's new London buildings in the most glamerous way possible. -- John Newman * Transactions of the Ancient Monuments Society, 58 * The format means that the book can be dipped into and the illustrations enjoyed, but it is also easy to read as a whole or by treating chapters as individual essays. -- Kate Andrew * SPAB, The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings, Autumn 2014 *
