Italianate Architecture on the South Shore and Beyond (Norwell)

January 23 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Architect Jim Kellliher Presents: Italianate Architecture on the South Shore and Beyond
The Italianate style of architecture was a distinct 19th-century phase in the history of Classical architecture. It was first developed in Britain in about 1802 by John Nash, with the construction of Cronkhill in Shropshire. This small country house is generally accepted to be the first Italianate villa in England, from which is derived the Italianate architecture of the late Regency and early Victorian eras. The Italianate style was further developed and popularized by the architect Sir Charles Barry in the 1830s. Barry’s Italianate style (occasionally termed “Barryesque”) drew heavily for its motifs on the buildings of the Italian Renaissance, though sometimes at odds with Nash’s semi-rustic Italianate villas.
