Lord Sidmouth's in Richmond Park.
Lord Sidmouth's in Richmond Park.
[after Humphry Repton.]
Published by J. Taylor, Feb 1. 1816.
Rare coloured aquatint with overlay. 230 x 320mm (9 x 11½). Trimmed into plate at sides.
The front of White Lodge, now the home of the Royal Ballet Lower School in Richmond Park. The name here refers to Prime Minister, Henry Addington, 1st Viscount Sidmouth, who was given the lodge by George III and enclosed the lodge's first private gardens in 1805. Published in Humphry Repton's 'Fragments on the theory and practice of Landscape Gardening', the plate has a hinged overlay: when the slip is down Richmond Park's deer and cattle are shown coming up to the walls of the Lodge; lifting the slip reveals a promenade with formal gardens free from wildlife. Repton (1752-1818) was the last great English landscape designer of the C18th, who coined the term 'landscape gardener'. Regarded as the successor to Capability Brown, he worked at Blaise Castle, Woburn Abbey, Stoneleigh Abbey & the central gardens in Russell Square, but lost out on the Prince Regent's Brighton Pavilion to John Nash (although he published his designs).
