Joseph Constantine Stadler after Thomas Shepherd
A View of the Horse Guards from Whitehall
25 x 21 inches
An aquatint in full original colour; engraved by Stadler after Shepherd and published in London in 1816.
A delightful scene of London's bustling Whitehall during the Regency. The scene is taken from opposite The Horse Guards and shows the imposing classical facade with entrance archways, sentry boxes and adjacent buildings. The Deptford to London coach carries passengers along the road and the scene is further enlivened with soldiers, street vendors and the Bon Ton.
