Abstract

The country house was a focal point of Georgian architecture, landscape and society. This book explores the meaning of this distinct architectural form through a wide range of examples and approaches to its history. The main body of the text presents an analysis of the social and cultural significance of the country house, and is complemented by essays from experts in a variety of disciplines. A wealth of illustrations, showing exteriors, interiors and landscapes of houses ranging from Blenheim and Harewood to lesser known examples such as A la Ronde, provides one of the most thorough historical and visual surveys of the period. The Georgian Country House offers new interpretations and enables the reader to gain an insight into the pivotal role the country house played in eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century society."
