The Inside View of the Rotunda in Ranelagh Gardens with the Company at Breakfast.
Bowles delin et Sculp.
Publish'd according to Act of Parliament, 1754 for Stowe's Survey [c.1800].
Copper Engraving. 290 x 400mm, 11½ x 15¾".
Engraving reversed from a painting by Canaletto in Compton Verney. The view focuses on the architecture of William Jones' rotunda, a structure in which the young Mozart performed (June 29th 1764). Ranelagh Gardens, adjoining the Wren's Pensioner's Hospital, became popular as a place to escape the city and take in the cleaner air in Chelsea. Balls, concerts, dinners and of course gossip were shared here almost daily. It quickly exceeded Vauxhall in popularity, but its popularity waned until the season of 1804 when the fashionable set abandoned it entirely.
