Description

An indispensable reference source for anyone with an interest in period styles of furniture and decoration, this renowned book comprises a complete survey of domestic interiors portrayed in art from the ancient world to the late 19th century. Available again after some years out of print, it presents a wonderfully rich collection of pictures of a type seldom reproduced anywhere. Around 400 paintings and watercolours from all over Europe, Russia and America record with faithful accuracy rooms of all periods and their contents: the furniture, fabrics, carpets, pictures and wall-coverings. This is a classic text that goes beyond scholarly commentary to present a fascinating cultural history of man in relation to his domestic surroundings.
