With a fresh point of view, this book presents new and rare material on architectural developments in England, France, and Italy during the eighteenth century, revealing how the trends in design were related to the everyday and earth-shattering events of the century. In presenting a thorough revaluation of the Post-Baroque style, the author interprets formal changes as the visual expression of the spiritual tendencies of that epoch.
