Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. George Frederick Bodley (14 March 1827 - 21 October 1907) was an English architect working in the Gothic revival style. Bodley was the youngest son of William Hulme Bodley, M.D. of Edinburgh, physician at Hull Royal Infirmary, Kingston upon Hull, who in 1838 retired to his wife's home town, Brighton, Sussex, England. George's eldest brother, the Rev. W. H. Bodley, became a well-known Roman Catholic preacher and a professor at St Mary's College, New Oscott, Birmingham. George Bodley was articled to the famous architect Sir George Gilbert Scott, a relative by marriage, under whose influence he became imbued with the spirit of the Gothic revival, and he gradually became known as the chief exponent of 14th century English Gothic, and the leading ecclesiastical architect in England. He is regarded as the leader of the resurgence of interest in English and northern European late-medieval design. Noted for his pioneering design work in the Queen Anne revival.show more
