NOTES: This drawing formed part of Lord Burlington's sequence of Palladio drawings. Until published in 1970 by Dr Margaret Whinney as by Inigo Jones, this drawing had been attributed to Palladio since it entered Lord Burlington's collection. It was therefore numbered by Burlington with the rest of the Palladio drawings now housed at the RIBA (XIV/8). Dr Whinney compared the techniques used in this sheet to those of Jones' designs in the early 1600s and she suggested that it was an elevation for the Queen's House, Greenwich. This conclusion has been reaffirmed by all but one subsequent authors.
