A very full account of the architectural partnership between Sir Thomas Deane, his son Thomas Newenham Deane, and Benjamin Woodward (1816-1861), in which Woodward was the designing genius. The partnership’s most notable building was the University Museum, Oxford, designed by Woodward personally in a Ruskinian Gothic style. The present book effectively supersedes an earlier study of the partnership’s work by Eve Blau, and is particularly helpful for its exploration of the partnership’s commissions in the partners’ native Ireland and for the information it provides on the buildings designed by the Deanes, father and son, before and after their partnership with Woodward.
