A lovely view of Hampton Court published in 1821. It was originally built for Cardinal Wolsey in the early years of the sixteenth century however, when he fell from royal favour, it passed to King Henry VIII who enlarged the palace. This is a sepia aquatint on paper based on an image found in Italian manuscript form from the “Travels of Cosmo III, Grand Duke of Tuscany, through England, during the reign of King Charles II (1669)”. The work was taken from a number of views “as delineated at that period by artists in the suite of Cosmo”.

Size: 240 300 mm. Sepia aquatint with additional hand colour. Good condition, some minor offset and foxing.
