Chiswick House is a pioneer work in neoclassical architecture. It was designed by the Third Earl of Burlington (1694-1753), who sought to create the kind of house and garden that might have been found in the suburbs of ancient Rome. In this, Lord Burlington, the foremost architect of his generation, drew inspiration from similar attempts by the architects of sixteenth-century Italy. The text throws new light on the architectural design of Lord Burlington's enchanting villa and the interpretation of classical themes within the lay-out of the house and gardens. Illustrated with color photographs, historical prints, maps, and floor plans.
