Gothic Interiors (from the Gothic MOOC)

Posted by Peter Lindfield on August 01, 2016 in Peter Lindfield, Uncategorized tagged with , , ,

This set of three videos considers the development, appearance and furnishing of the Georgian Gothic interior as exemplified especially in British country houses.

 

If you are interested in eighteenth-century Gothic architecture, interiors and furniture, you may be interested in my forthcoming monograph, Georgian Gothic: Architecture, Furniture and Interiors, 1730–1840, to be published in later October 2016 by Boydell Brewer. The book will be launched at Strawberry Hill House, Twickenham, on 17 November 2016.
