Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"The Eiffel Tower is a pictorial study of the great structure by acclaimed architectural photographer Lucien Herve, who began photographlng the tower in his youth in the 1930s and has returned to it throughout his career as a source of artistic creativity. Herve's stunning images convey the delicate balance between the structure's elegant ironwork and its sheer physical force. Ranging from pictorial studies of the tower in the Paris landscape to abstract compositions of iron and glass, his photographs are modern masterworks in their own right." "Architectural historian Barry Bergdoll, one of the preeminent scholars of nineteenth-century French architecture, provides an introduction to the book, describing the controversial history of the tower, its construction, and its place in the canon of modern design."
