NOTES:    An attractive view of the gardens at Hampton Court Palace, London. The view is looking from the south east, towards the Wren building, with the formal ‘Privy Garden’ on the left. This is the garden recently restored under the direction of the then Curator, Dr Simon Thurley, now the head of English Heritage. The overgrown bushes and trees were removed, and careful archaeological investigation including the examination of old maps, plans and prints (such as this one) enabled a very authentic restoration to take place. The print has its title glued to the back, but has lost the rest of the inscription. However, it is almost certainly one of the series that publishers such as Sayer or Laurie produced through the mid century.


CONDITION:    The image area is in very good condition and appears to be contemporary colour, but the print is trimmed tight to the image area and mounted on a contemporary board. The title strip has also been glued to the rear, suggesting that the print might have been one of a set prepared for viewing in a Zograscope or optical machine.
