Grinling Gibbons (1648 - 1721), the greatest of decorative woodcarvers, is seen in this study through the eyes of a fellow carver. His flamboyant cascades of lifelike blossoms, fruits, foliage, birds and fish dominated English interiors of the late seventeenth century - in royal palaces, churches and cathedrals, and great country houses. David Esterly's first-hand experience of limewood foliage carving gives him unprecedented insight into Gibbons's method and technique. Unique photographs illustrate these procedures, while spectacular interior shots show the carving in its original setting. Tools, workshop practice, materials and finishes are also discussed in detail.

“A wonderful insight into the manual skills of the workers of the period”

This is a fascinating read from the first to the last page, beautifully illustrated and the accompanying commentaries are comprehensive.
