This book offers the only extended consideration of Latrobe\'s Virginian watercolors, including a series of complex trompe l\'oeil studies and three significant illustrated manuscripts. Though Latrobe\'s architecture is well known, his watercolors have received little critical attention. Epic Landscapes rediscovers Latrobe\'s watercolors as an ambitious body of work and reconsiders the close relationship between the visual and spatial sensibility of these images and his architectural designs. It also offers a fresh analysis of Latrobe within the context of creative practice in the Atlantic world at the end of the eighteenth century as he explored contemporary ideas concerning the form of art for Republican society and the social impacts of revolution.\"--Jacket.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/10003957445<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/10003957445#Series\/studies_in_seventeenth_and_eighteenth_century_art_and_culture<\/a>> ; # Studies in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century art and culture<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/10003957445#Series\/university_of_delaware_press_studies_in_17th_and_18th_century_art_and_culture<\/a>> ; # University of Delaware Press studies in 17th- and 18th- century art and culture.<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"Epic landscapes : Benjamin Henry Latrobe and the art of watercolor<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"1104072508<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9781644531594<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/1104072508<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
