Pyne’s Royal Residences

Between 1816 and 1819 William Henry Pyne employed a number of artists to make drawings of British royal residences. The drawings were used to make prints for sale by subscription. Among those buildings recorded was Carlton House. These views provide an invaluable record of Carlton House after the alterations to the interior overseen by Walsh Porter, and of the way in which George displayed his collections. Among the works in the exhibition, Rembrandt’s Shipbuilder and his Wife can be seen in the Blue Velvet Room, and the blue Chinese cistern is displayed in the Rose Satin Drawing Room.

Presumably acquired for the library at Carlton House, c.1819
