Chief Justice Sir James Monk, Monkville in Montreal, and Some Related Neo-Palladian Revival Architecture in Early Lower Canada and Nova Scotia
Abstract
A general assessment of major architectural monuments raised in Quebec City and Montreal in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries by the political administration of the period, and of the importance and intrinsic meaning of the Palladian villa as model and type of these monuments. The author describes the villa of Chief Justice Sir James Monk, built in 1803 and which still stands as an integral part of Montreal's Villa Marie School. The author studies Monk's family connections, and the ideological and architectural context of his mansion houses in Lower Canada and Nova Scotia.
