Architecture of the Middle Ages. Drawn from Nature and on Stone
A beautifully illustrated survey of medieval architecture in Northern Europe. An accomplished artist throughout his early life, Nash "earned celebrity by his picturesque views of late Gothic buildings, English and foreign, which he enlivened with figures grouped to illustrate the habits of their owners in bygone days...Having at an early period mastered the art of lithography, Nash utilised it in the production of several excellent publications; his 'Architecture of the Middle Ages' appeared in 1838" (DNB).
Nash's work is distinguished by its particular concentration on achieving a pleasing visual effect rather than concentrating on absolute accuracy. The overall work is notability for its beauty, symmetry and detail.
