Description: New York: Rizzoli, 2011. 31cm., hardcover, 320pp. with numerous color illus. Publisher's summary : A definitive volume on the storied designers of the Gilded Age. Architects of America's Gilded Age, Carrere and Hastings designed commercial buildings, elaborate residences, and prominent public structures in New York, Washington, London, Paris, Rome, and Havana between 1895 and 1924. Their client list included Carnegie, duPont, Rockefeller, Harriman, Morgan, Gould, Astor, Payne, Whitney, and Vanderbilt. They are revered for Beaux-Arts masterpieces such as the New York Public Library, the Ponce de Leon Hotel in St. Augustine, and the Frick House (now The Frick Collection) in New York, among many others. In addition, they made extensive renovations to the U.S. Capitol, and designed the Senate Office Building, the House Office Building, and the Carnegie Institute in Washington. This sumptuous monograph explores their work with a detailed look at residential, institutional, and commercial works such as the Alfred I. duPont House (now Nemours Mansion) in Delaware; the Flagler House in Palm Beach; and, in New York, the Henry Sloane House (now Lycee Francais), the Public Library, Standard Oil Headquarters, the Neue Galerie, Grand Army Plaza, Bryant Park, and others.
