A Perspective View of the West Front of the Royal Building for His Majesty's Horse and Foot Guards, &c.
According to Act of Parliamt, 1752.
Hand coloured etching, sheet 365 x 585mm. 14¼ x 23".
A military review in Horse Guards parade. After Painter, sculptor, and architect William Kent (1685 - 1748). He built the Horse Guards and the block of treasury buildings (the central portion of a design never fully executed) which overlook the parade at Whitehall. Devonshire House in Piccadilly, the Earl of Yarborough's in Arlington Street, and Holkham, Norfolk, the seat of the Earl of Leicester, are also examples of his skill in the Palladian style, and do more than any other of his existing works to justify the high patronage which he enjoyed. A scarce print.
