Sir John Soane : enlightenment thought and the Royal Academy lectures by David Watkin ( Book )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Sir John Soane: The Royal Academy Lectures contains the full text of Soane's lectures. It is a revised and abridged edition of his award-winning book Sir John Soane: Enlightenment Thought and the Real Academy Lectures. Watkin explains the significance of Soane's approach to architectural history and theory, as expressed in the lectures delivered from 1810 to 1820 as Professor of Architecture at the Royal Academy. Providing a key that enables the modern observer to understand the work of an architect who is widely regarded as the most inventive of his day in Europe, the lectures enable us to enter Soane's private dialogue with an array of philosophers, architectural theorists, art historians, archaeologists, and anthropologists. They are accompanied by a selection of the watercolors that Soane prepared as illustrations."--Jacket

"A perpetual collision of eccentricities, a tilt and tournament of absurdities, the prejudices and caprices of mankind let loose" was how Hazlitt described William Hogarth's paintings, and they still delight, interest and amuse as much today as two hundred years ago. The Rake's Progress and An Election are Hogarth's two most famous series of paintings. Both series are in Sir John Soane's museum in London, and in this book the Librarian of the Museum, Christina Scull, tells the story of the paintings and discusses their narrative and contents
