Product Description

The world's foremost experts in the field examine the entire spectrum of Kent's oeuvre in this book. William Kent (1685-1748) created a total style for a new nation and monarchy and was the most versatile British designer of the eighteenth century. The scope of his extraorinarily broad achievements encompass architecture, palatial interiors, elaborate gardens and exquisite furniture. Among his many creative innovations are bold combinations of elements from Palladian, rococo and gothic design that anticipate the intermingling of architectural styles we see today.
