Mathew found that this type of sculpture makes its home within a style of architecture known as Collegiate Gothic which was popular in the 19th and early 20th centuries. He has collected his findings in his book called: “The Grotesque 10: Amazing Architectural Sculpture from Ten American Colleges and Universities" and presents a selection in this illustrated lecture, giving you a taste of the variety of ornament, history, and humor these campuses have to offer.
The grotesque 10 schools are:
• Yale University
• Trinity College in Hartford, Ct.
• Bryn Mawr College
• The City College of New York
• Duke University
• Northwestern University
• Princeton University
• The University of Chicago
• The University of Pennsylvania
• Washington University in St. Louis
