KARL FRIEDRICH SCHINKEL, 1781-1841: THE DRAMA OF ARCHITECTURE. Ed. by John Zukowsky. Art Institute of Chicago, 1994. Published in association with Ernst Wasmuth Verlag, Tubingen. 176 pp. with 188 ills. (51 col.). 31 x 25 cm. LC 94-5313 ISBN 3803028221 In English.
A scholarly study of Schinkel's influential oeuvre that emphasizes the theatrical character of his artistic vision, this catalogue provides clear reproductions of nearly 100 drawings, watercolors and prints produced by the renowned German Neo-Classical architect over the course of his career, including plans and perspective renderings of both realized and proposed projects, illusionistic set designs, and panoramic landscape and urban views. Six substantial essays discuss such topics as Schinkel's achievements as a scenographer, his interest in ancient Greek models of urban planning, his early experiments with diorama painting, the innovative elements of his landscape designs, and the social ideals reflected in the architecture of public theaters constructed in Germany during the early 19th century.
