by Richard R. and Willis Cecil Winters Brettell

Crafting Traditions book.

Crafting Traditions book. The volume contains an essay by Richard R. Brettell placing Lemmon as historicist in the context of a modernist century, as well as a critical biography of the architect by Willis Cecil Winters with a chronological list of buildings and projects by the team of DeWitt and Lemmon (1921–1926) and later by Mark Lemmon (1926–1964).

by Richard R. Brettell. This is the first work to document the life and career of Dallas architect Mark Lemmon, a pre-eminent American historicist. It is an illustrated testament to Lemmon's ideas of architectural civility, solidity, and retrograde by many architectural historians, though taking on a renewed relevance after the post-modernist revisionism of the 1970s.

Images of works throughout the book are in black and white, so you have to Google them to get a good idea of what's actually going on. Brettell, formerly Director of the Dallas Museum, is currently an independent consultant to museums around the world. It makes no sense. The table of contents is also off and there aren't consistent page numbers, which makes it difficult to follow along with assigned readings for class.

Richard Storrs Willis (February 10, 1819 – May 10, 1900) was an American composer, mainly of hymn music. His best known melody is probably the one called, simply, Carol. This is the standard tune, in the United States, though not in Great Britain, of the much-loved hymn "It Came Upon the Midnight Clear" (1850), with lyrics by Edmund Sears.

Jules Breton and the French rural tradition. It is oddly appropriate that the most important exhibition ever devoted to the art of the French painter Jules Breton has been mounted in Omaha, Nebraska. stimulating book Pissarro, Neo-Impressionism, and the Spaces of the Avant-Garde (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1996).

Mr. Winters makes this book the great research collection that it is. Mr Brettell wrote a nice introduction and did a good collaboration, but the obvious great relationship with Mark Lemmon's work was Willis C. Winters'. Brettell has obviously a brilliant mind for art history, but merely a strong attraction for architecture. Bravo, Mr. Winters.

Excellent Book!!!!
This is a really beautiful book, featuring the long career and projects of supreme Dallas classicist Mark Lemmon. While most of his work is in Dallas, he designed important structures in Austin, Port Arthur, Galveston and Houston. It's really more proper to call him a TEXAS classicist. He worked primarily in the Georgian and Gothic styles, with short experiements in Deco and Modernism. This book captures it all, and includes a complete catalog of Lemmon's prolific oeurve.

His work is truly lovely, and most of it survives today. The best example of his skill and tradition can be found at SMU. Essentially the entire campus is his work. He designed important buildings at the University of Texas, Georgian and Gothic churches for large protestant congregations, and many lovely school buildings throughout eastern Texas.

The book itself does justice to the man and his buildings. Highland Park Methodist, one of his most important structures, gets something of the short end probably because it was one of his early projects. The only reason I gave four stars instead of five is that the book is really quite expensive for its size. The quality, however, is superb. The text by Brettell is not just filler either. It's really very good, as it nicely frames Lemmon in historical context and offers a lucid overview of this important period in American architectural history.

Not just for Texans, this book belongs to a much broader collection of important architectural studies.
This book is a fitting tribute to THE Dallas architect. As a student a U.T. I always admired his buildings, I liked his take on Mediteranian Architecture and his buildings had wonderful function. Mark Lemmon was the foremost architect of the grand Texas church, when a wealthy congregation needed a new signature church they called Mark Lemmon, he is famous across the state for these amazing buildings. His buildings where functional above all, but elegant. I have walked through the SMU campus many times and always stop to admire his wonderful take on Georgian architecture. This book does a wonderful job of capturing his buildings and the man. The photos are vivid and crisp and the text scholarly, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Mark Lemmon deserves to be in the realm of great Texas architects along side John Staub and O'Neil Ford. Thank you Mr. Brettell for a wonderful book on a most deserving subject
