THE FORMER COUNTY HOUSE IN LEVOČA. THE PROBLEM OF ITS STYLE INTERPRETATION IN THE CONTEXT OF THE EUROPEAN CLASSICISTIC ARCHITECTURE
Languages of publication
The article analyzes the building of the former County House in Levoča (1807-1826) by architect Anton Povolný. The Classicist style quality present in its facade - extraordinary regarding the date of origin, exceeding the surrounding context and bearing witness to the local orientation to Germany - conceals the traditional Late Baroque interior layout bearing witness to the official state power of the Austrian Monarchy. The preference of the Classicist style manifested a relative independence of city representatives from the centre.
