Chiswick Villa

Chiswick Villa, begun in 1725 for Lord Burlington, was one of the earliest Palladian buildings in England. Its new classical gardens in the landscaped style were among the first to be opened to the public on a fee-paying basis. The gardens at Chiswick, more than any other, were represented by artists in England during the eighteenth century. These fine prints (RCIN 701784.d .f .c .a .e .g) were first issued in 1753 and would have been intended to appeal to the new garden-visiting public.
