“Jean-Jacques Lequeu does in fact hide behind the most enigmatic and controversial smile in the history of art,” writes Philippe Duboy in a book that is one of the most tantalizing examples of architectural investigation ever produced. It is an extraordinary compilation – part speculative biography, part meticulous research, with hundreds of intriguing drawings, many in color – that unravels the mystery of this eighteenth-century maverick artist whose drawings have established him variously as a visionary architect associated with Boullee and Ledoux, forerunner of surrealism, and inventor of bad taste.

Condition: ex-library copy albeit with minimal markings and stamps.
