Description

Inconclusive Evidence is a semiotic study of letters, drawings, sketches and paintings related to Strawberry Hill in Twickenham, Middlesex, one of the most studied villas of all time and regarded as a forerunner to the Gothic revival in architecture. Horace Walpole assembled a ‘Committee of Taste’ to assist him in its construction, and as a result of the social requirements of the time an all male household emerged. The book sheds new light on the relation between Strawberry Hill and modernity.
