Eugene Viollet-le-Duc, French architect, died
Born in Paris, he was as central a figure in the Gothic Revival in France as he was in the public discourse on "honesty" in architecture, which eventually transcended all revival styles, to inform the moving spirit of Modernism. Sir John Summerson considered that "there have been two supremely eminent theorists in the history of European architecture, Leon Battista Alberti and Eugene Viollet le Duc" -1879
