Researched and written by Brian Andrews, this catalogue honours the prodigious talents of Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin (1812-52), the highly influential early Victorian architect, designer and theorist. Pugin's only coherent collection of works outside Britain and Ireland is to be found in Australia. This is the first comprehensive study of Pugin's Australian works, some of the most significant in history. Over 280 items are described, analysed, illustrated and set within the wider social and artistic context and include furniture, textiles, stonework, metalwork, books, paintings, engravings, drawings, photographs and designs.
