Inigo Jones Architecture. Royal Palace, Whitehall p14-17. Engraving c1725

by Jones, Inigo

Inigo Jones Royal Palace, Whitehall original antique print c1725.

Royal Palace, Whitehall as designed by Inigo Jones. (The main London royal residence from 1530 to 1698, this palace with over 1,500 rooms was the largest palace in Europe when, except for the Banqueting House, it was destroyed in the great fire of London in 1698.)

Original copperplate engraving by Henrik Hulsbergh after a drawing by Henry Flitcroft, published in London between 1715 and 1767 by Colen Campbell, to illustrate the beautiful architectural design of the classically-inspired English architect Inigo Jones (1573-1652), who has been described as “the father of English professional architects”. Inigo Jones believed strict mathematical proportion should control plan, elevation, and every other detail of construction.

The engraved pages (joined) measure 410 x 980 mm (16 x 38.5 inches). Measurement to the plate mark is 330 x 950 mm (13 x 37.5 inches). This is a stunning engraving. It has later hand-colour, and mishandling of the vertical folds for the smaller size publication have resulted in excessive creases. (Price adjustedly accordingly.)
