St George's, Bloomsbury : a Hawksmoor masterpiece restored by Kerry Downes( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This fascinating book tells the story of the creation of Nicholas Hawksmoor's celebrated eighteenth-century London church, St George's, Bloomsbury, and its recent multimillion-dollar restoration, underwritten by the World Monuments Fund in Britain and the Paul Mellon Estate. Commissioned by Parliament in 1711 and completed in 173 1, the church, best known from its depiction in Hogarth's 1751 engraving, Gin Lane, has been hailed as a masterpiece of Late Baroque architecture and one of the finest churches in England built between the Reformation and the nineteenth century." "The renovation, completed in 2008, has restored the church as it was designed by Hawksmoor, re-establishing its original orientation, and reinstating the north gallery and the whimsical lions, unicorns, festoons, and crowns that originally graced its celebrated spire. The statues had been removed in 1871, having been declared "very doubtful ornaments". Horace Walpole once described the whole tower as "a masterpiece of absurdity"." "St George's, Bloomsbury is one of a series of books co-published by Scala and the World Monuments Fund(WMF), the foremost private organization dedicated to the preservation of cultural heritage around the globe through a comprehensive program of fieldwork, advocacy, training, and grant-making. Since its founding in 1965, WMF has worked to stem the loss of more than 430 irreplaceable sites in 83 countries."--Jacket
