Nicholas Hawksmoor was born in Nottinghamshire, England in 1661. Discovered by the plasterer Edward Goudge, he worked as a clerk in the offices of Christopher Wren where he exhibited "early skill and genius in architecture". By 1700 Hawksmoor had become an accomplished and indispensable assistant to Wren. He also assisted Sir John Vanbrugh on the construction of Castle Howard in 1699 and on Blenheim Palace a few years later.
Hawksmoor never visited Italy, but he researched the works of Antiquity, the Renaissance and the English Middle Ages. His studies of the Italian Baroque through engravings helped him to become a major figure of English Baroque.
Although Hawksmoor actually designed few buildings, he acted as a capable colleague to the great architects of his time by providing them with a mastery and knowledge of the works and theories of past architects.
