Shaw, Richard Norman (English Architect, 1831-1912). CRAGSIDE, NORTHUMBERLAND. Pen and ink on paper, 1880s. A rendering of this famous country house, designed by Shaw in the years between 1870 and 1885 for William George Armstrong (1810-1900) 1st Baron Armstrong, who used it as a sporting lodge. Since 1977 it has been owned by the National Trust. Cragside is considered to have been the first private residence fitted with electricity. In very good condition, and in its original frame. Shaw was considered a revolutionary indomestic architecture in his time because of his return to the traditional craftsmanship which had characterized the Queen Anne and Georgian styles. He was the architect for New Scotland Yard, which is considered his most important work.
