Descrizione
He has by one little work — the Cenotaph-made joy in fine architecture a possession of the people. Wholly admirable as it is in its own right as a piece of austere design, it is much more. It was accepted forthwith by every one gentle and simple, by those who use strange phrases about Art and by those who have never thought of Art in terms of human life, as a perfect expression of the Nation's grief and thankfulness and of its pride in the Glorious Dead. By that one work Sir Edwin Lutyens' art has become an affair of national importance. I am tempted to believe that there are many who will not care to follow a laborious estimate of his place in British architecture, but may like to see something of the buildings that have set him where he stands. For the Cenotaph is something more than a happy incident it is a normal development.
