Bowles and Carver.
The Royal Palace of Kensington.
16.5 x 10.5 inches
Hand coloured etching published by Bowles and Carver as part of a topographical series in London circa 1790.
There can be few views of London that have changed as little in over 200 years as this perspective of Kensington Palace taken from the south east in the 1790s; even the pathways and tree lined avenue are in the same position as they are today. The Bon Ton are assembled on the lawns in front of the palace and the Orangery can be glimpsed through the trees in the background.
