James "Athenian" Stuart, 1713–1788: The Rediscovery of Antiquity

This comprehensive exhibition was the first devoted solely to Stuart, and its accompanying catalogue (produced by the Bard Graduate Center and Yale University Press) finally brought attention to the life and extraordinary work of this important architect and designer. The assemblage of 150 works was unprecedented and came from a variety of public and private collections in the United States and Great Britain, the most important being the Morgan Library, Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University, Royal Institute of British Architects, Royal Collection, Victoria & Albert Museum, National Trust, and Sir John Soane’s Museum.
