The castle as photographed in the early 20th century. Such characteristic Scarpan motifs as horizontal rows of lines stepped inward or outward to imply a Classical molding can be traced directly to Wright, who seemed to offer a viable third way between politically tainted Classicism and globally generic Modernism. The richness of the detailing and the density of design answer to a degree the criticism of the lack of both in much of twentieth century modernism. Please contact sales breakfastmissionpublishing.
