Richardson’s picturesque, monumental style was succeeded by the academic style of his former pupils, McKim, Mead and White. This was based on Classical and Renaissance forms.

Sumptuous and imposing, the monuments express the arrogance of an economically imperialistic age, but they hardly formed as sound a basis for American development as Richardson’s style had done.

In the nineties American architecture split. The east took the path of tradition; the Middle West sought new directions.
