Excellent source of artistic movements in Poland 30 Jan. 1999
By krolewskim@aol.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Mr.Knox presents the historical and factual background as to when/why/how Poland successfully entered into the period movements of the West. Usually unknown or ignored by scholars, the wealth of Poland is shown in its architectural expression over the years. Pictures, diagrams and blueprints highlight the author's presentation; and reference to the Polish Nation's historical tragedies exhibit the will of a people to build, create and express themselves in the face of adversity. The author divides the present country into geographic areas in order to orderly present his material. Over 200 pictures are utilized. The only drawback is the failure of a greater recognition to thousands of architectural monuments on the lands of Pre-War Poland - now within the countries of the former USSR.
Comprehensive & objective 12 Aug. 2008
By D. Kofford - Published on Amazon.com
A comprehensive review of the history of architecture within the present Polish borders from early romanesque to the nineteenth century and a little post-war modern. Includes plans and sections of many chapels, cathedrals, palaces and country estates with black and white photographs at back of the book. A great source for understanding the evolution of the architecture of Poland from an objective, non-romantic point of view. An excellent book.
