From the Publisher: Highlights the extraordinary houses of one of the 20th century's most prolific architects. John Russell Pope (1873–1937) was an architect of tradition and a master of proportion, massing, and scale. Drawing on a personal palette rich in historic precedents from ancient Greece to colonial America, Pope created original and refined designs that embodied the aspirations of the United States as an emerging world power. Both his private and public work—which includes the National Gallery of Art and the Thomas Jefferson Memorial—possess a poise and confidence that emanated from a disciplined approach to architectural design formed by his experiences at home and abroad.

A 17-bedroom house I did in Tuxedo Park (New York) by Pope taught me I needed this book to make the renovated house look like I’d never been there.
