New Houses of Parliament, Palace of Westminster, London: perspective from the south-east

Barry, Sir Charles (1795-1860)
NOTES: This painting is a copy of Allom's orignal perspective that came to William Brakspear after having worked in Sir Charles Barry's office. The original watercolour, one of two of the new Houses of Parliament, was commissioned by Barry and gifted to Tsar Nicholas I following his visit to London in 1844.
