Ashgate, 2002 - Architecture - 323 pages
Since antiquity through to the present, architecture and the pictorial arts (paintings, photography, graphic arts) have not been rigidly separated but interrelated - the one informing the other, and establishing patterns of creation and reception. In the Classical tradition, the education of the architect and artist has always stressed this relationship between the arts, although modern scholarship has too often treated them as separate disciplines.
