by David Irwin
Part of the Art & Ideas series
Neoclassicism was the favourite style of both Napoleon and Thomas Jefferson, and made Josiah Wedgwood's fortune.
The most pervasive style in the history of European art, it was deployed in the design of houses, churches, museums, banks, shops and items of daily use ranging from teapots to textiles.
This book is the first to embrace all manifestations of the style, not only its broad territorial scope, but also its versatility in every branch of art.
