Designs for the restoration of the Palacio de Liria, Madrid, for the Duque de Alba: transverse section through the grand staircase
|Architect/Designer||Lutyens, Sir Edwin Landseer (1869-1944)|
|Artist/Photographer||Lutyens, Sir Edwin Landseer (1869-1944)|
NOTES: This palace was built for the 3rd Duke of Berwick and Liria, James Stuart Fitz-James, to designs by Ventura Rodriguez. The palace was almost completely destroyed by a bombing raid in 1936. Its faithful reconstruction, which lasted twenty years and involved Sir Edwin Lutyens (for interior rebuilding, circa 1950-1955), commenced once the Civil War was over.
