A particular favorite of mine and the bible for design historians who wish to trace the history of interiors from Pompeii to Art Nouveau. It is crammed with 400 paintings and watercolors, mostly from 1770 to 1860, that illustrate interiors from Europe, Russia, and the U. S. with commentary and insights from this renowned and extremely literate scholar.
