From the Paper:

"The following paper will examine the life, times and impact of Inigo Jones, an architect whose contributions to the modern era of the field have too often been overlooked. The following paper will examine Jones' status as the leading English architect of the seventeenth century. The paper will also examine Jones' indebtedness to Andrea Palladio - specifically his treatises on architecture - and to classical Roman architecture. As the following pages will make clear, Jones' work is typified by distinctive Italian embellishments and flourishes that would have been otherwise impossible had he not been so deeply influenced by the grandeur and splendor of ancient Roman architecture."
