Descrizione
Thomas Jeckyll (1827-1881) ranks among the least understood and most tragic Aesthetic Movement figures in England. This abundantly illustrated book explores his innovative and brilliant designs in architecture, furniture, metalwork, and interiors and restores him to his deserved place among the architect/designers of his time. The book is the definitive study of Jeckyll's life and work, and it presents his notable buildings and diverse examples of his decorative arts. Susan Weber Soros and Catherine Arbuthnott examine Jeckyll's most important architectural commissions, among them the extravagant five-story Cambridge town house, Rance's Folly. They also discuss the interiors he designed-some of the most innovative and evocative Aesthetic Movement rooms of his time-as well as the remarkable furniture and metalwork designs for which he is best-known today, including the "Four Seasons Gates" that were exhibited in Paris and Vienna.
