Renaissance revival


Renaissance Revival (sometimes referred to as Neo-Renaissance) is an all-encompassing style designation that covers many aspects of 19th century architectural revival styles which were neither Grecian (see Greek Revival) nor Gothic (see Gothic Revival) but which instead drew inspiration from a wide range of classicizing Italian modes.
