Synopsis

The country house was the focal point of Georgian architecture, landscape and society. This book explores the meaning of this distinct cultural form using a wide range of examples and approaches. Dana Arnold presents an analysis of the social and cultural significance of the country house, and her work is complemented by essays from experts in a variety of disciplines. Illustrations, showing exteriors, interiors and landscapes of houses ranging from Blenheim and Harewood to lesser known examples such as A la Ronde, provide a thorough historical and visual survey of the period. This title offers fresh interpretations and enables the reader to gain an insight into the pivotal role the country house played in 18th- and early 19th-century society.
