Palladio PDF/EPUB ↠ Paperback

Palladio Ackerman crafts a very compelling story out of the life and work of Palladio You come away from reading this with a deep appreciation for this innovative architect and an understanding for why his impact has been so great In particular the chapters on Palladio s villas in the Veneto are fascinating I carried it in my backpack when I visited the region and toured some of the villas and cities like Vicenza where his work is concentrated and it greatly enhanced the experience. Thus is not the most exciting read but it is a thorough discussion of Palladio s work You need to have the patience to go forward and back to look at plates Frequent recourse to the interwebs for supplementary images is also useful. Not for the general reader Difficult to get through without background knowledge of architectural terms and theory. Somewhat dull, as an account of Palladio s work and thinking. About as lively as Palladio s corpse, but stillinteresting than watching paint dry maybe. This is a lovely little gem of a book that I keep coming back to. Palladio combined classical restraint with constant inventiveness In this study, Professor Ackerman sets Palladio in the context of his age the Humanist era of Michelangelo and Raphael, Titian and Veronese and examines each of the villas, churches and palaces in turn and tries to penetrate to the heart of the Palladian miracle Palladio s theoretical writings are important and illuminating, he suggests, yet they never do justice to the intense intuitive skills of a magician of light and colour Indeed, as the photographs in this book reveal, Palladio was as sensual, as skilled in visual alchemy as any Venetian painter of his time , and his countless imitators have usually captured the details, but not the essence of his style There are buildings all the way from Philadelphia to Leningrad which bear witness to Palladio s permanent place in the making of architecture , yet he also deserves to be seen on his own terms [PDF / Epub] ❤ The End (The 30-Day Collective Book 1) ✅ Ellen A.
