Joseph W. Craig Mausoleum, Sewickley Cemetery

An unusual classical design from 1899 that depends on textures for its effect: the rusticated but very regular stone contrasts pleasingly with the green tile of the roof and the smooth-cut doorway. The green color of the tile almost perfectly matches the verdigris of the bronze doors; one wonders whether that effect was intended or a happy accident.
