Nikolaus Pevsner
Pevsner's career is a prism through which to view the world of art history as it developed in England in the middle of the twentieth century.
Pevsner quotes
Pevsner was very much the German bourgeois Jew - a certain amount of austerity and not a lot of giggles.
A bicycle shed is a building; Lincoln Cathedral is a piece of architecture. Nearly everything that encloses space on a scale sufficient for a human being to move in is a building; the term architecture applies only to buildings designed with a view to aesthetic appeal.
