This large bird’s-eye view of Kensington Palace depicts its south front and topiary gardens as they looked during the reign of George I. Presumably because it reminded him of his German palace and gardens at Herrenhausen, George I felt particularly at home at Kensington. He therefore engaged in an architectural campaign to enhance its gardens and interiors. In the Royal Collection by c.1900 Cat. 24
