Inigo Jones And the European Classicist Tradition
Giles Worsley
0300117299
Oct 2006
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
In this groundbreaking volume, conventional assumptions about one of England’s greatest and most influential classical architects are turned on their head. Traditionally, Inigo Jones has been looked upon as an isolated, even old-fashioned, figure in European architecture, still espousing the Palladian ideals of the 16th century when European contemporaries were turning to the Baroque. Yet an investigation of contemporary European architecture and of Jones’s buildings belies this impression, demonstrating that Jones must be viewed in the context of a European-wide, early-17th-century classicist movement.
 
Giles Worsley examines the full range of Jones’s architecture, from humble stable to royal palace. Worsley shows that key motifs that have been seen as proof of Jones’s...


Inigo Jones and the Classical Tradition

June 2006
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Inigo Jones worked as hard on the creation of his architectural persona as he did on the design of the buildings for the early Stuart court. Through his study of continental architectural and art theory, humanist education, and courtly behavior, Jones redefined the intellectual status of architecture in England and forged a new role for the architect in public life. Since the time of his death, he has been variously described as the first educated architect, the first classicist, the first Renaissance architect in Britain, and the savior of British building from the long winter of the Elizabethan style. This reputation has overlooked the many ways that Jones drew on English customs in order to shape classical architecture for a domestic audience. This book explores the creation of Jones as professional architect and...

Most Notable Antiquity of Great Britain
Inigo Jones
0766167836
July 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
1655. This discourse of Stonehenge is molded off and cast into rude form from some few undigested notes of the late judicious Architect, Inigo Jones. That so venerable an antiquity might not perish, but the world made beholding to him for restoring it to light encouraged this treatise. Due to the age and scarcity of the original we reproduced, some pages may be spotty, faded or difficult to read. Written in Old English.


Albion's Classicism: The Visual Arts in Britain, 1550-1660,
Lucy Gent

January 1996
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Distinguished scholars from a variety of disciplines examine the visual arts in Britain between 1550 and 1660 and demonstrate that approaches to art at the time were not limited to the classical Italian Renaissance canon, as has been supposed. On the contrary, art, architecture, and literature in Britain were subject to local influences, habits, and visual sensibilities that interacted with classicism and the work of such masters as Inigo Jones.
