Charles Garnier (1825 ? 1898) was a French architect, perhaps best known as the architect of the Palais Garnier and the Opéra de Monte-Carlo. In 1861 Garnier entered and won the competition for the new Paris opera house. Garnier\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s works represent a Neo-Baroque-inspired style, popular during the Beaux-Arts period in France. He was influenced by the Italianate styles of Renaissance artisans such as Palladio, Sansovino, and Michelangelo, perhaps the result of his many visits to Greece and Rome during his lifetime. His design reflected the aspirations of the Second Empire with its rich colouring and decoration. From his studies of Roman pageantry, Garnier had developed a great sense of occasion and drama which when coupled with a logical floor plan was used to good effect in the opera. He was also a pioneer of architectural beauty as well as function; his opera was built on a framework of metal girders, unprecedented at the time., Size : Two Folios; 2 Quartos, Complete with 75 plates including 55 black and white lithographs and 20 coloured choromolithographs depicting the architectural design of the Paris Opera House by the architect Charles Garnier.
