Sir William Chambers RA, Design for window wall, Queen Charlotte's Music Room, Windsor Castle, Berkshire: elevation

Design for window wall, Queen Charlotte's Music Room, Windsor Castle, Berkshire: elevation, 1794

Sir William Chambers RA (1723 - 1796)

RA Collection: Art

This drawing is dated 1794, a year earlier than those for the interior of the adjacent Drawing Room. The design is for the exterior wall of a room approximately 43 feet long, dominated by three thirteen foot tall windows with semi-circular heads. The view out the window is of a hilly landscape. Between the centre and two outer windows are two rectangular panels with egg-and-dart moulded frames dominated at the bottom by a matching pair of oval ornamental frames, with palm branches and scallops, which are either purely decorative or, more likely, were to contain pier glasses (mirrors). The cornice is decorated with a design of alternating acanthus and leaves. The walls are coloured light blue.
