1. Look at this website: www.apter-fredericks.com click on the “stock” tab, and see if you can find me any Kent, Adam, or Linnell pieces. You might not, but it will be fun to look! If you can’t, please tell me about two Georgian-era pieces that did catch your eye on this site and why you like them. (NO CLOCKS) What makes them typical of the Georgian era? Please include thumbnail images. (Careful—“Regency” or “George IV” don’t count here. That’s a History III topic.) So all in all, send me three thumbnail images and explanations—hopefully some of them will be of the three designers mentioned above.
2. Please find another example of a Robert Adam interior. A simple Internet search will give you an extensive list of English houses for which Adam designed the interior. Please include two thumbnail images of his work for this house and include the name and the history of the house in which these interiors can be found. (Give some depth of detail here—who lived in the house, what is its historical importance, etc.)
