The Art and Architecture – Part I

Dr. White opens Part One of his commentary on “Art and Architecture” with a description of a large private estate and the castle that dominates it, the castle we come to know as Brideshead. From there White delves into Waugh the young artist in the 20s who loved anything “modern,” even Picasso. White explores the art movements of the times, and broadens his commentary to include a comparison of art and photography and how those creative endeavors influenced Waugh the writer. White maintains that the decay of Brideshead was an architectural parallel to the apostasy of England.
