Ruins of Ancient Rome: Drawings of the French Architects Who Won the Prix de Rome, 1786-1924.
David, Massimiliano.
Ruins of Ancient Rome: Drawings of the French Architects Who Won the Prix de Rome, 1786-1924.
In this magnificently printed volume are reproduced some of the most extraordinarily handsome drawings of the ruins of ancient Rome made by French "Prix de Rome" architects from 1775 through 1925. Accompanied by text that explains how the Prix de Rome was awarded and the significance of the prize in the history of architecture, as well as how the study of ancient models formed the basis for nineteenth- and early twentieth-century architectural styles, these drawings provide an invaluable understanding of how the modern imagination recorded and transformed ancient fragments into a modern architectural idiom.
