0.00

One of a series of early 18th century copperplate engravings from The Principal seats of the Nobility and Gentry of Great Britain, published in 1715. This ambitious publication depicts stunning bird’s eye topographical views of significant English buildings and the estate grounds surrounding them. The views are important records of both architecture and formal garden design of the period, which in many instances have since been altered beyond recognition. The artist responsible was Johannes Kip (1652-1722) a genius Dutch artist, who drew and engraved this and similar work and another Dutch artist, draughtsman Leonard Knyff (1650-1722).
