Abstract:

Eclecticism is the movement in American architecture that gave us so many neo-Georgian houses, Gothic churches, Byzantine synagogues, Roman banks, and so on between about 1880 and 1920. Questioned by the sophisticated for decades, it nevertheless produced many of America's most famous architects. Henry Hobson Richardson, Richard Morris Hunt, Charles Follen McKim, Stanford White, Ralph Adams Cram, Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue, John Russell Pope--as diverse as their styles might be--all contributed to Eclecticism. This volume defines, traces the history of, and attempts to evaluate this rich and colorful movement.
