French Architecture and the English, 1835–1914

 

A study day at the Art Workers' Guild, 6 Queen Square, London WC1N 3AT. Saturday 25 April 2020 9.55am to 5.30pm.  Doors open at 9.30am.

The aim of this study day is threefold: to examine the various Victorian buildings built in England to the designs of French architects and explain why Frenchmen were chosen; to trace the fluctuating reputation of French architecture and design in England over the Victorian and Edwardian years; and to assess the infiltration of Beaux-Arts influences into English architecture, particularly in the cities from 1880s onwards.
