Charles Robert Cockerell in the Mediterranean : letters and travels, 1810-1817 by Susan M Pearce( Book )

Charles R. Cockerell (1788-1863) was one of the most significant nineteenth-century British architects and a major player in the cultural shift from the Georgian eighteenth to the Victorian nineteenth century. Cockerell's travels in the eastern Mediterranean between 1810 and 1817 were the formative experience of his life. His forty letters from this period, held in the archives of the Royal Institute of British Architects and published here for the first time, give crucial day-to-day insights into his actions, thoughts and feelings in relation to the intricate histories of the re-discovery and sales of the Aegina and Bassae marbles and, equally importantly, illuminate his hugely significant work on temple architecture and sculpture in mainland Greece, the great cities of Asia Minor, and the significant temples of Sicily. 0Drawing on these letters, and on some 150 unpublished letters sent by his friends while they were all in Greece and now held in the British Museum, this book elucidates what Cockerell did and why by analyzing his methods of work and their significance. It discusses Cockerell's aesthetic and conceptual development during his time abroad, particularly his influential part in the changing vision of Greek sculpture and architecture, from Winkelmann's static ideal to one rooted in dramatic tension and contextual contingency

4 editions published between 1762 and 1979 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James 'Athenian' Stuart and Nicholas Revett??'s monumental Antiquities of Athens was the first accurate survey of ancient Greek architecture ever completed. Based on precise measured drawings done at the sites of the ancient ruins between 1751 and 1754, these books set a new standard for archaeological investigation in the eighteenth century. In doing so, they also transformed our understanding of Greek architecture and???by pointing up differences between Greek and Roman examples??? fundamentally challenged prevailing notions about a universal classical ideal, and fueled the Greek Revival movement that dominated British, European, and American architecture and design for over a century. Originally published in four volumes that appeared between 1762 and 1816, Stuart and Revett??'s masterwork is presented here in its entirety as part of our Classic Reprints series and features a new introduction by scholar Frank Salmon. With its many images of buildings, plans, sculpture, friezes, and decorative objects such as vases, it remains the logical starting point for anyone interested in Athens, Greece, and its influence on the whole history of Western architecture

Travels in Sicily, Greece and Albania by T. S Hughes( Book )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between 1812 and 1814, Cambridge fellow and cleric Thomas Smart Hughes (1786-1847) and Robert Townley Parker, later an MP for Preston, embarked on a tour of Mediterranean countries, 'those theatres of the most interesting events recorded in the annals of history'. This two-volume account of their travels, illustrated with plates from the drawings of the architect Charles Robert Cockerell, was first published in 1820. In Volume 2, Hughes describes the second leg of the journey, beginning in Epirus in Greece and moving through Albania before returning to England via Italy and France, noting important historical events that took place at each location and describing the local legends, habits and customs. He quotes freely from other travel writers of the time, as well as from ancient authors and inscriptions encountered on the tour. Included also are anecdotes which render this account vivid and readable, allowing the author's personality and opinions to reveal themselves
