Very good copy in dust wrapper. This prize-winning study was the first detailed study of Lescaze's life and work and is still the best account. Lescaze (1896-1969), was born in Switzerland. He studied in his native country and in Germany before moving to the USA in the early 1920s and was a pioneering modernist of great distinction. Includes his work in England, with his buildings at Dartington, perhaps the finest of these being Warren House, recently beautifully restored. Excellent monograph, now becoming scarce.

Synopsis : This examination of William E. Lescaze's fifty-year architectural career makes a significant contribution to the history of the inception and development of modernism in the United States. Winner of the Art Alliance Press Award, Lorraine Lanmon's study emphasizes Lescaze's role in the introduction of the European modern style of the 1920s to the East Coast of the United States, documents his work from the formative period of modernism in Western Europe through its early development in the United States, and concludes with his post-war work to his death in 1969.
