01. The Art and Architecture of Owen Browne Carter (1806-1859)
Hampshire Papers 1: The Art and Architecture of Owen Browne Carter (1806-1859)
by Robin Freeman

Arguably amongst the most accomplished and original architects practising in Winchester in the first half of the nineteenth century, Owen Browne Carter is perhaps best known for the Winchester Corn Exchange, now the library in Jewry Street.

However between about 1823 and the 1850s Carter was also involved in the design and restoration of some of the most significant buildings in Winchester and the surrounding area, including the Great Hall, Winchester, and he worked in a wide range of architectural styles. He also produced a considerable number of architectural and topographical drawings for lithography and publication and his achievements as a topographical artist gave him national recognition.

This paper, which is plentifully illustrated with examples of his work, outlines Carter's life and his career as an architect, illustrator, archaeologist and architectural historian. It also examines the basis for the attribution to him of a number of building designs.
