STUDIES IN ARCHITECTURE (A. ZWEMMER)
Series Note:
"Desmond Zwemmer appointed Rudolf Wittkower and Anthony Blunt founding editors of what would come to be regarded as Zwemmer's finest publishing achievement: the series Studies in Architecture, the prospectus was launched in 1957. Two leading scholars of baroque studies in the United States (since Wittkower's move to Columbia in 1957-57) and in Britain, as Director of the Courtauld Institute in London (1949-74), thus led the charge of one of the most serious series in which baroque and later European architecture was presented on equal terms with the Renaissance. So too, with the appearance of Wittkower's magisterial survey in 1958, architecture was accorded equal status with other arts and, perhaps because of his particular penchant for it, one might consider that in his contribution to the Pelican History of Art, architecture occupies a special place."
