Fielding & Walton

Fielding and Walton spent two years in the Lake District making drawings and collecting information and "extracts from admired poets" to produce this magnificent work, fully entitled "A Picturesque Tour of the English Lakes, Containing a Description of the Most Romantic Scenery of Cumberland, Westmoreland, and Lancashire, with Accounts of Ancient and Modern Manners and Customs, and Elucidation of the History and Antiquities of that Part of the Country, etc., etc.," – a comprehensive title clearly aimed at the informed tourist.

The volume was printed in London by William Clowes for Rudolph Ackermann, who was known for his lavishly illustrated publications. It contains forty-eight hand-coloured aquatints made from the original drawings by Fielding and Walton.

Jacques Androuet du Cerceau (1510-1584)

French architect, Jacques Androuet du Cerceau's most noted publication, Les Plus Excellents Bastiments de France (The Finest Buildings of France), a two volume set of engravings published in 1576 and 1579, depicts the new Renaissance 16th century buildings of France, many of which have been destroyed or altered. The viewpoint of Cerceau's architectural drawings is from up high, showing the finest detail the towers of Chambord, the walls of Amboise, the staircase of Blois, and the façades of the Louvre. There are also other buildings that had their period of glory, but have been destroyed by time, wars and the Revolution: flowerbeds at the Tuileries, the dwellings of Folembray, Montargis, Challuau, La Muette and the famous castle from Madrid that was in the woods of Boulogne.

Gilles De Mortain

Architect and landscape designer Gilles De Mortain's engravings of the chateau and gardens at Versailles were made at the very end of King Louis XIV's life in 1715. De Mortain was responsible for the integration of buildings into their surroundings, and envisioned long symmetrical bilateral vistas for ceremonies and processions. They are considered the best record of the chateau and its gardens in their most complete state.

William Henry Pyne

Pyne’s engravings from The History of the Royal Residences (1816-19) is a remarkable pictorial record of the interior decorations and furnishings of Windsor Castle, St. James’s Place, Carlton House, Kensington Palace and Hampton. They show some of the most important, interesting, and extravagant examples of British architecture, interior design, and decorative arts. Initially trained at the drawing academy of London, Pyne exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1790. His watercolors are in major museum collections, including the Royal Collection and the British Museum.
