The Royal Palace of Hampton Court.
16.5 x 11 inches
Hand coloured etching published by Carington Bowles as part of a topographical series, London circa 1790.
Early prints of Hampton Court such as this were invaluable when, towards the end of the C20th, the gardens at Hampton Court were reconstructed in their original form. This scene captures a summer afternoon with fashionably dressed ladies and gents strolling along the parterres and cavorting under the leafy glades.
