About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1916, this book discusses, debates and demonstrates the inextricably entwined nature of architecture and sculpture, in terms of their principles, ideals and practices. Providing a detailed overview of the history of the two arts and the harmony which has existed between them throughout the centuries, this book endeavours to disentangle the historic assumption that the two arts exist independently of one another. A broad range of chapters are included, ranging from 'The treatment and placing of sculpture in the historic periods' to 'Decorative sculpture' to 'Large monumental layouts'. Photographs depicting international examples of architecture and sculpture are included throughout. This book explores the necessity for practitioners to understand the requirements and limitations in both fields and will be a valuable resource to students, scholars and researchers of the history of architecture and sculpture.
