Colonial Revival Maine
(Princeton Architectural Press, 2004; 192 pp.)
Beginning with McKim, Mead, Bigelow, and White's famous sketching trip of 1877, architects have recorded the historic architecture of northern New England and incorporated its imagery into their own designs. Colonial Revival Maine provides an insightful account of how an interest in the classical influences of colonial- and federal-era buildings engaged the imagination of a group of Boston-based architects and their draftsmen. Together, these under-appreciated designers would create the charming streetscapes and bucolic retreats that today dot the Maine coast. Kevin Murphy is an associate professor of art history at The Graduate Center and Brooklyn College.
