Joseph Gandy (1771-1843) is a classic case of unrecognized genius. His dreams of being a great architect were frustrated, and his fame today rests on the imaginative power of his unrealized projects, on his superbly imagined reconstruction of Greek and Roman buildings and on the drawings in which he brought Sir John Soane's most extravagant ideas to vivid life. Professor Lukacher's book, the first biography of this remarkable man, draws together the threads of his life and art, forcing us to re-assess one of the most original minds between Neoclassicism and Romanticism.
