KARL FRIEDRICH SCHINKEL: A UNIVERSAL MAN. Ed. by Michael Snodin. Victoria and Albert Museum, London, 1991. Published in association with Yale University Press, New Haven. 232 pp. with 257 ills. (108 col.). 29 x 25 cm. LC 91-50586 ISBN 0300051654 In English.
A significant study of the wide-ranging artistic, architectural and design achievements of important German architect Schinkel (1781-1841), whose influential building projects (most in and around Berlin) ranged from Gothic Revival churches and Neo-Classical royal residences to major civic structures that anticipated modernist trends in their emphasis on function. Detailed scholarly commentaries on some 160 works (including numerous architectural drawings and watercolors as well as Romantic landscape paintings and decorative and stage designs) are supplemented by seven substantial essays examining Schinkel's diverse accomplishments, and by recent and prewar photographs documenting an array of buildings and interiors designed by the architect.
