The Genius of Robert Adam
Adam’s name has become an epithet for his architectural and interior design work, which is characterised by a remarkable and often overwhelming expression of stylistic and chromatic unity. Neither a furniture designer nor maker by trade, he did, however, design a number of pieces for specific locations within his room designs and so this lecture will discuss neo-classic furniture in the context of the Grand Houses and rooms for which it was intended. His style was interpreted and adapted by celebrated cabinetmakers, who produced furniture that made “charming harmony” with his interiors.
An excellent follow-up to a lecture on either neo-classic architecture or silver.
