Details

As a trainee architect, Charles Robert Cockerell (1788–1863) was sent to Greece, Asia Minor and Italy on the recommendation of his master, Robert Smirke, then engaged in the design of the Royal Opera House’s Doric portico. Cockerell was an exceptionally intelligent and sensitive observer and his letters home on the ancient Greek sites he visited are the basis of this study of his key role in the cultural shift from Georgian to Victorian architecture in Britain.
