Book: J.B. Bullen «Byzantium Rediscovered»

Byzantium Rediscovered

Серия: "-"

This book is the first ever to investigate a fascinating and fundamental but relatively unfamiliar subject: the revival of interest in the Byzantine style of architecture and decoration in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The Byzantine Revival was always a minority cult that attracted outsiders, visionaries and extremists, and J B Bullen's original and scholarly narrative paints a vivid and entertaining picture of the colourful figures in Germany, Austria, France, Britain and America who rediscovered Byzantium and reinterpreted it's style to promote widely differing aims. Through it's sweeping scope, this interdisciplinary study is thought-provoking and timelessly absorbing, intellectually and aesthetically.
