Catalogue for one of the great courts in the 1854 Crystal Palace at Sydenham. Detailed description of the exhibition’s sculpture, facades, and paintings. Wyatt and Waring give a synoptic history of the Italian Renaissance and its main influences across Europe, providing a rationale and walking tour for the exhibition. This was more than a lesson in history and art: Michelangelo, Raphael, Titian, da Vinci, Cellini, and many more. It also was an effort to train visitors to feel continuity between Renaissance and the innovations to be found everywhere around them in Victorian Britain. Facsimile of 1854 original edition.
