About the Author

Adriano Aymonino is senior lecturer and director of undergraduate programs, Department of History and History of Art, University of Buckingham.


“A magnificent array of illustrations reconstitutes the houses —at Syon, it is still possible to judge the splendour of what architect Robert Adam created. Dr Aymonino has produced a well-written, thoughtful book that brings these extraordinary achievements sharply into focus.”—John Goodall, Country Life

“Draws on photos of surviving objects (both in situ and not), plans, elevations and interior decoration schema, and contemporary paintings and drawings. That makes for a beautiful publication.”—Historic House Magazine

“Beautifully illustrated and persuasively argued, Aymonino’s account restores this determined, occasionally vainglorious couple to prominence.”—Matthew Dennison, World of Interiors


“This volume is an important addition to the bookshelves of those interested in civic
improvement and personal virtue. It sheds light on the eclectic taste of Georgian Britain,
emergence of neoclassicism and historicism, the Grand Tour and the Enlightenment as
well as an engaging observation on the role played by these important collectors and
patrons.”—WSG Bulletin
