100 Period Details: Plasterwork : From the Archives of "Country Life"

Plasterwork provides the reader with an introduction to the importance of plasterwork in British decoration. An opening essay on the history and chronology of plasterwork — from the Elizabethan and Jacobean eras to its glorious peak in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and subsequent use in various Revivals — is followed by a gallery of 100 superb black-and-white photographs. Here are magnificent plasterwork ceilings, their ornamentation and inset painting, elegant capitals and columns, and elaborate stucco overmantels — the fruits of some of the most famous craftsmen in history.
