Sir William Chambers RA, Alternative design for window wall with thin piers, Queen Charlotte's Drawing Room, Windsor Castle, Berkshire: elevation

Alternative design for window wall with thin piers, Queen Charlotte's Drawing Room, Windsor Castle, Berkshire: elevation, c.1795

Sir William Chambers RA (1723 - 1796)

RA Collection: Art

This is an alternative design to 08/4501. The principal difference between the two designs is that the two panels between the three windows are narrower in this drawing and that the decorative ovals, presumably pier glasses, are also narrower and of a slightly different design with circular top mirrors. The cornice too is of a different decorative pattern, with bucrania, lyres and paterae. Yenn has painted a view of a landscape with a church steeple (left window), ruins (middle) and rolling hills (right).
