About this title

Synopsis:

A look at the life and work of the nineteenth-century architect examines the impact and influence of White's greatest works--including the Washington Square Arch; the Metropolitan, Colony, and Players Clubs; and the Vanderbilt, Whitney, and Pulitzer mansions.

From Library Journal:

White was one of America's most gifted and prolific designers at the turn of the century, responsible, with his partners Charles McKim and William Mead, for such New York landmarks as Madison Square Garden, Tiffany's, and the Washington Square Arch. In this remarkable book, Lowe paints an unforgettable portrait of the exuberant architect and the dazzling city he inhabited and embellished for over a quarter century. The list of White's friends and clients reads like a who's who of New York society: Joseph Pulitzer, Stuyvesant Fish, Alva Vanderbilt, Elsie de Wolfe, and Augustus St. Gaudens, among others. Lowe's scholarship is impeccable, capturing the spirit of the times and the artistry of White with vigor and grace. Highly recommended.
