The engraver Jean-Francois de Neufforge, born in Liege but active in Paris, played a major role on the architectural scene of late eighteenth-century Europe. The Recueil elementaire d'Architecture and its Supplement (1756-1780), together numbering over 900 plates, offered an unending source of inspiration for modern architectural compositions in the latest fashion, called "a la grecque" at the time. The Austrian Low Countries in particular discovered the architecture of the French avant-garde in this fashion; Neufforge's oeuvre thus constitutes a pivotal moment of exchange with the North. Based on an international symposium organised at the Catholic University of Leuven, this book is the first to offer a critical analysis of Neufforge's engravings: their genesis, conception and reception. The influence of his oeuvre on contemporary architectural practice is studied for the Southern Low Countries and in the Princedom of Liege, Switzerland and Russia. This volume offers also newly discovered archival documents and a critical catalogue of plates which describes the variations between the different editions.
