Jean-Jacques Lequeu: The Architectural Imagination in the Age of Reason
With Barry Bergdoll
On April 14, 2020, the ICAA held its first virtual livestream Public Program by hosting Barry Bergdoll, who spoke about the vivid imagination and skillful renderings of draftsman and architect Jean-Jacques Lequeu.
Barry Bergdoll is a specialist in late 18th and 19th century French and German architecture, and the author of numerous works on the period, including the textbook European Architecture 1750-1890 in the Oxford History of Art series. He is also the author of the introduction to the recent ICAA publication The Complete Works of Percier and Fontaine, published in partnership with Princeton Architectural Press. He is Professor of Art History at Columbia University and former Chief Curator of Architecture and Design at the Museum of Modern Art.
