This etching shows the imposing new forecourt of Buckingham House, with sweeping iron railings and ornamental gates fashioned by the French ironmaster Jean Tijou, who also created the ironwork railings at Hampton Court Palace. In the centre of the forecourt is an octagonal basin and a fountain with Neptune riding his seahorses.
