The Canal, Chinese Building, Rotundo, &c. in Ranelagh Gardens, with the Masquerade.
[after Canaletto.]
London Printed for Rob.t Sayer, at the Golden Buck in Fleet Street [n.d., c.1770].
Fine coloured engraving. Sheet 170 x 270mm (6¾ x 10½"). Trimmed within plate, mounted in album paper at edges. Central crease.
Ranelagh Gardens, adjoining Wren's Chelsea 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 it's popularity waned until the season of 1804 when the fashionable set abandoned it entirely. During the masquerade depicted here, participants were disguised or in fancy dress, often favouring Oriental costume. This Oriental taste was reflected by Ranelagh's 'China House' created in 1750. After Antonio Canaletto (1697 - 1768). From a series of reduced views, numbered '7' upper right.
