The Origins of the Modern Villa

Abstract [en]

Modern was something Horace Walpole (1707-97) wanted to be. The essay investigates in which sense it is possible to identify a certain methodology used by Walpole in his oeuvre, as a writer on gardens, architecture, collections, art and in his practice as a gardener, architect-builder and collector. It investigates whereas Walpole’s main project the villa Strawberry Hill may be seen as modern in an untimely sense, with its gardens and collection. It compares Walpole with his predecessors, contemporaries and epigones. It relates Walpole to his contemporary discourse and when relevant, to ours. It describes a moment of modernity avant la letre.
