A view of Orleans House, a Palladian villa on the Thames in St Margaret's, Twickenham, home to Louis Philippe, Duke of Orleans, between 1813 and 1815. A very large image with coaches and riders. The artist, Louis Marie Baptiste Atthalin (1784-1856), had been an aide-de-camp of Napoleon before taking the same role for Louis Philippe in 1814, after the first exile of Napoleon, at which time he painted this view. Despite rejoining Napoleon for the Hundred Days, Atthalin remained a favourite of the Duke: after becoming king in 1830 Louis Philippe made Atthalin Maréchal de Camp. When Louis Philippe abdicated after the February 1848 Revolution, Atthalin also lost his position, after which he retired from public life.
