About the Event
John McConnell will be presenting a three- lecture course which examines Andrea Palladio’s Architecture. The first segment will focus on his major works and then the enthusiastic Palladianism which followed from it for centuries in both Europe (in part 2) and America (in part 3). Learn how Palladio was the most widely influential architect in Western history (1508 – 1580). How he achieved prominence for work in the area around Venice. How he was adopted into a circle of learned men, where he rose from an apprentice stone cutter to the pinnacle of his profession as an interpreter of Imperial Roman art and culture and how his fame and influence spread far and wide, from Bombay to Boston along with the eventual publication of his books in many languages. In shaping this heritage to his clients’ benefits, he arrived at a unique personal architectural style.
