"Stephen Gardiner offers an enlightened overview of the development of house and home, from its beginnings in the caves of early man, through all the variety of structures that have since evolved, influenced by climate and material, but also by culture, custom and religious beliefs. A rich profusion of indigenous styles has emerged, from huts of mud and reeds, Ziggurats, Chinese underground villages with sunken courtyards, multi-storeyed tenements in Ancient Rome, Japanese designs that blend with nature, Indian towns laid out like a cross, the Palladian and Georgian Arts and Crafts and, coming into the modern period, the rediscovery of a more human scale, and the importance of the frame, in particular in the designs of Le Corbusier and Frank Lloyd Wright."--Jacket

Frink : the official biography of Elisabeth Frink by Stephen Gardiner( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Elisabeth Frink (1930-1993) was a phenomenon - an outstanding figure of British twentieth-century art and one of the few women to break into the art establishment. Aged twenty-one and still a student at Chelsea Art School, she sold her first work, a bird, to the Tate Gallery. National recognition soon followed." "Born into an ordinary Army family, Frink's early, impressionable life was broken up by her father's travels around the country. With the Second World War she had her first experience of the violence which was constantly to influence her work." "She evolved into an original, passionate and exceptional sculptor, fulfilling a wide variety of both private and public commissions. Above all, Frink was a figurative artist: seduced by the physical rather than spiritual aspects of sculpture. Her material - the disintegrating world around her and her passion for Man - was untouched by any contemporary movements or passing fashions: she possessed an inner strength and an unshakeable integrity in her art."--BOOK JACKET
