The Grotesque 10: Amazing Architectural Sculpture from Ten American Colleges & Universities
Armed with only a camera, a sense of humor and a host of frequent flyer miles, Mathew Duman embarked on a “grotesque safari”, traveling to 10 universities around the country to photograph the grotesques and gargoyles roosting on their academic buildings. Mathew found that this sculpture makes its home within a style of architecture known as Collegiate Gothic which was popular in the 19th and early 20th centuries. He has collected his findings in his new book called: “The Grotesque 10: Amazing Architectural Sculpture from Ten American Colleges and Universities “ and presents a selection of them in this illustrated lecture, giving you a taste of the variety of ornament, history and humor these campuses have to offer.
