"Barbara Miller Lane focuses on the movement called 'National Romanticism,' which flourished in Germany and Scandinavia from about 1890 to 1920, and offers a new interpretation of its origins. During this period, painters, interior designers, city planners and architects created a new kind of domestic architecture and interior design, as well as monumental architecture. Drawing on local and regional folk traditions, and encouraging a simple way of life, architects such as Eliel Saarinen, Hans Poelzig, and Martin Nyrop, among others, looked back to medieval and even prehistoric times for their models, as they tried to create a new architecture for the new millennium." - publisher.
