Adamesque

Isaac Kremer/ January 14, 2018/ / 0 comments

An architectural style based on the work of Robert Adam (1728-1792) and his three brothers, predominant in England in the late 18th cent. And strongly influential in the U.S.A., Russia, and elsewhere. It is noted for its delicate Neoclassical ornament, particularly for interiors. The style is characterized by clarity of form, use of color, subtle detailing, and unified schemes of interior design. Basically Neoclassical, it also adapted Neo-Gothic, Egyptian, and Etruscan motifs. Adamesque was a major influence on the American Federal style.
