Abstract :
Examines how the Georgian domestic architecture of Dublin was represented across a period of major conflicts and political change in the city. By 1900 most of these Georgian houses had effectively become proletarianized and Catholicized through their conversion into tenements. 'Georgianism' arose in reaction to this transformation, partly out of a desire to record and conserve the houses and partly through panic about the tenements' inversion of social spaces and their consequent threat to the image of an ascendancy past and an imperial order in the present. Drawing on representations in visual art, in town planning and government reports, and in the volumes produced by Dublin's Georgian Society, the article argues that Georgianism involved a highly selective account of past glories but also one that projected a future in which the fantasy image of the 18th c. would be reasserted. ;
