Page 567 - It is curious,' says Mr. Fergusson, although he is no implicit believer in the transmission of races, ' that as we advance eastward from ' the Valley of the Euphrates, at every step we meet with forms ' of art more and more like those of Central America...
Page 332 - The whole width is within 10 ft. of that of Cologne, and the height about the same; and yet, in appearance, the height is about half, and the breadth less than half, owing to the better proportion of the parts and to the superior appropriateness in the details on the part of the German cathedral.
Page 225 - Holyrood was almost rebuilt in the reign of Charles I., and Edinburgh Castle entirely remodelled. Stirling still retains some fragments of ancient art, and Falkland seems on the verge of the Renaissance. Linlithgow perhaps alone remains in its original state, a fine specimen of a fortified palace, with bold flanking towers externally, and a noble courtyard in the centre.
Page 134 - of all the architects of Northern Europe, seems to have conceived the idea of getting rid of what was in fact the bathos of the style — the narrow tall opening of the central tower, which though possessing exaggerated height gave neither space nor dignity to the principal feature. Accordingly he took for his base the whole breadth of the Church, North and South, including the aisles, by that of the transepts with their aisles in the opposite direction.
Page 299 - It is essential to remark this, and to bear it in mind even here ; for in all the subsequent remarks on Gothic architecture, it is this necessity for a stone roof that was the problem to be solved by the architects, and to accomplish which the style took almost all those forms which are so much admired in it.
Page 315 - There is perhaps no question of early Christian archaeology involved in so much obscurity as that of the introduction and early use of towers.
Page 517 - Looked at externally or internally, nothing can exceed the grace of every part of this building. Its small dimensions exclude it from any claim to grandeur, nor does it pretend to the purity of the Greek and some other styles ; but as a perfect model of the elegance we generally associate with the architecture of this people, it is perhaps unrivalled by anything in Egypt, and far surpasses the Alhambra or the Western buildings of its age.
Page 490 - Mahavellipore, than any European structure, and in fact must be considered as almost purely a Tartar building. Still, though strangely altered by time, most of its forms can be traced back to the Byzantine style, as certainly as the details of the cathedral of Cologne to the romanesque. The central spire, for instance, is the form into which the Russians had, during five centuries, gradually changed the straight-lined domes of the Armenians.
Page 450 - Sophia — internally at least, for we may omit the consideration of the exterior, as unfinished — is the most perfect and most beautiful church which has yet been erected by any Christian people.
Page 20 - Although the cathedral of Spires cannot boast of the elegance and finish of that of Worms, it is perhaps, taken as a whole, the finest specimen in Europe of a bold and simple building conceived, if the expression may be used, in a truly Doric spirit.
