dc.description.abstract
This thesis examines the work of a family of UK antiquarian artists and architects: the Buckler dynasty. Over three generations, the family – John Buckler (1770-1851), John Chessell Buckler (1793-1894) and Charles Alban Buckler (1824-1905) – gloried historicism in the nineteenth-century Gothic Revival. They independently and collaboratively fulfilled a century’s-worth of commissions in the revived styles of English domestic and ecclesiastical architecture. Such work included: commissions for the colleges of Oxford and Cambridge; country houses for the old aristocracy (especially old Catholic families); restorations and new places of worship for the Established Church; and, following Charles Alban’s conversion and a revived Catholic hierarchy in the UK, for Roman Catholics. The Bucklers have hitherto not received much scholarly attention, and consequently have not occupied a significant place in the narrative of canonical architectural history. With a biographical and architectural methodology, the significance of the Bucklers’ contribution to our discipline is redefined in this thesis. It seeks to uncover the broader configuration of the family’s thoughts and outputs over the long nineteenth century, fleshing out details of nineteenth-century society and culture in reference to the dynasty’s aspirations, successes and failures. Above all – if at first unwittingly and irresistibly – the thesis is about preservation. The Bucklers’ market was a diverse social grouping that sought to preserve fading ideals. First of all, the Bucklers helped preserve such ideals on behalf of armigerous clients through the language and symbolism of neo-medieval art. Secondly, they literally (and indefatigably) preserved medieval buildings in situ and through surveys. Thirdly, though, they worked hardest of all to preserve the dynasty that they themselves had created. With the latter in mind, the notion of ‘dynasty’ is the main idea that holds all of these concerns together over four chapters.
