About this artwork
In this English reception room of the Jacobean Period (1625-55) Italian Renaissance architecture and the contemporary fashion for Baroque ornamentation are the major influences. Here, Mrs. Thorne drew on two lavish rooms at Wilton, the magnificent house designed for Philip Herbert, fourth Earl of Pembroke.
