HAMPTON COURT ALBUMS OF CATHERINE THE GREAT

Superb publication of the Hampton Court Albums of Catherine the Great!

In 2016 everyone seemed to be celebrating the 300th anniversary of the birth of Capability Brown, the great landscape gardener. The Hermitage Foundation UK joined in by supporting publication of this album of drawings. So famous were British landscaped parks in the eighteenth century that even Empress Catherine the Great dreamed of having an English Garden in St Petersburg. She purchased two albums of watercolours of Hampton Court Palace gardens and its surrounding parks which she used as inspiration while designing her 'English Garden' at Peterhof.

Some of the sheets were on display at Hampton Court 28th April - 4th September 2016 but although that exhibition has closed you can still purchase a copy of the publication at the special price of just £25.
