9 BRISTOW, Ian C. JONES, Inigo WREN, Christopher Architectural Colour in British Interiors 1615-1840. Paul Mellon Centre forStudies in British Art Series . First Edition in dustjacket.
Yale University Press, New Haven & London, 1996, ISBN:0300038666 
BRISTOW, Ian C. Architectural Colour in British Interiors 1615-1840. New Haven & London: "Published for the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art by Yale University Press", 1996. First Edition. Pp (6),vii-xxi,(1),1-265,(1). Illustrated in colour and black & white. 4to, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "For many years, historical architectural colour has been anelusive topic, since paint fades and discolours, and most early schemes ha ve been obliterated by succeeding phases of redecoration. In parallel with this, the taste of later generations has also overlaid earlier ideas of colour with a mass of subjective opinion and received wisdom. To remedy matters, this objective study combines information from documentary sources with data obtained from the technical investigation of significant interiors by important architects of the period, and presents for the first time a coherent outline of true historical practice. It is an essential complement to more conventional architectural studies of form and space. Earlier essays inthe topic have not only been limited by the ephemeral nature of the physic al evidence, but have often assumed a fixed or universal canon of taste andfailed to understand the manner in which this has changed with every gener ation. A lack of technical knowledge has also led to the misinterpretation of early documents; and although much has been published on the more immediately accessible subjects of wallpaper, textiles, furniture, and fine decorative painting, this is the first study dedicated to the architectural colours which united them. It is thus a key text for students of all aspects ofthe historic interior, besides the more general reader. In a series of cha pters, the noble interiors of Inigo Jones are contrasted with more intimatespaces of the period; and the succeeding drabness adopted in many rooms of the second half of the seventeenth century is set against its taste for ma rbling, graining, and imitation japan. It is shown how the new foundation established by the Palladians came to provide the basis for the lively use of colour by Robert Adam and his contemporaries; and the study concludes by showing how the development of colour theory in the early nineteenth century superseded eighteenth-century ideas and, combined with the Regency taste for the exotic, led to an entirely new outlook, much of which still forms present-day preconceptions." - from the dj. Chapters: 1. Introduction: the age of Inigo Jones; 2. The age of Wren; 3. The Palladians from 1715 to the mid-1750s; 4. The coloured neo-classical ceilings of Robert Adam and his contemporaries; 5. Paint colour on walls in neo-classical interiors; 6. The late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries: archaeological and exotic influences; 7. New perceptions of colour: its usage at the end of the period. With notes, sopurces and index. Faint mark where label removed from endpaper, else very good in dustjacket. 100.00

Index. 4to, red cloth, maroon le ttering to front board and spine, colour illustrated endpapers. Photographyby Ed Kirkpatrick. "Many students and many people who have seen Mary Shepp ard Burton's work have asked for this book. Asked to see her work time and time again. Asked to know what makes her "tick." How does she produce such superior works of hoked art on such a variety of subjects, and in so many extraordinary ways? This is the reason why so many fine elements have been brought together to make this book. And this is why, much like her wonderfulwork, this book is unlike most others. Her writings are offered up here ex actly as she wrote them. They may have been entries in a notebook or journal. Thoughts jotted down on the back of an envelope, or written between the lines of someone else's text that she found meaningful. Look at them. Leaf through them to find what is of moment to you, and allow hem to open your mind to possibilities in your own life and work - whatever that work may be.In this book there is simply what constitutes a compendium of Mary Sheppar d Burton's unbelievably beautiful life work - and the lovely, undestated, humble, from-the-heart writings that accompany her paintings in wool, and validate them. These are accompanied as well by the work of some of her friends: among the finest textile artists in the world today." (from the dj).
