The triumphal arch designed by painter and architect William Oram (d.1777) for the coronation of George III. While as an architect only one building by Oram is known (although he did several smaller jobs on royal residences), as a landscape artist Oram's paintings and prints are now seen by some as pre-dating the picturesque theories associated with William Gilpin.
