Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: This is a complete survey of European architecture of the 19th century. In particular, it examines the influence of the cultural trends of the period on the architects' works. The first section deals with the history of 18th-century architecture in France and England, countries where Cartesian-school philosophical speculation and Anglo-Saxon philosophical empiricism wielded a determining influence. After analysing the developments of the classical tradition and its propagation throughout Europe, the book studies in depth the history of architectural movements, comprising neo-Classicism, neo-Renaissance and neo-Gothic architecture. The outstanding, forerunning personalities of this brilliant artistic period who, in the course of the 19th century, offered fecund theoretic and stylistic contributions include Gottfried Semper, John Ruskin and Eugene Viollet-le-Duc.
