St Peter's Square with St Peter's Basilica and colonnades, Rome

RIBA125912
Bernini, Gian Lorenzo (1598-1680)
SOURCE: Giovanni Battista Piranesi. Vedute di Roma (Rome, [1747?-1788]), pl. 101 NOTES: Construction on the Basilica di San Pietro in Vaticano began in 1506 under Donato Bramante. Work continued under the direction of leading architects of the time and the body of the church was completed by 1626. Piazza San Pietro is partly enclosed by two semi-circular colonnades, designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini in 1656-1667. For a similar view in this work made almost 25 years earlier see RIBA10986.

View showing house, conservatory and new wing with observatory in parkland setting, Orwell Park, Nacton, near Ipswich, for George Tomline: perspective

RIBA125935
Burn, William (1789-1870)
NOTES: William Burn was employed by George Tomline to remodel Orwell Park during the 1850s and 1860s. Following Burn's death in 1870, John Macvicar Anderson designed the Orwell Park Observatory as an extension to the mansion in collaboration with the civil engineer Wilfred Airy. The drawing shown here was made after Burn's death. This is possibly the perspective exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, in 1872 by John MacVicar Anderson (no. 1190 Orwell Park, near Ipswich).

Competition design for the Queen Victoria Memorial, The Mall, Westminster, London: bird's-eye perspective looking from Buckingham Palace down The Mall

RIBA125938
Webb, Sir Aston (1849-1930)
NOTES: A limited competition for a national memorial to the late Queen Victoria was initiated in April 1901 with five architects invited to contribute designs for the architectural surroundings to a statue of the Queen to stand directly in front of Buckingham Palace; the monumental statue would be created by Thomas Brock R.A. Webb was declared the winner in late July 1901 but his original scheme, as seen above, would be much revised as the anticipated funds failed to appear. The memorial was officially opened on 16 May 1911. This image was published in Building News, 1901 November 1, p. 598-599 (in addition to the corresponding view from The Mall towards Buckingham Palace).

RIBA125941
NOTES: The elevations of the fireplace at the bottom, labelled as being for the Chateau de Cormatin, are so detailed it is possible Gentilhatre may have designed it himself.

Two half-elevations of fireplaces

RIBA125942
NOTES: The drawing at right is inscribed Sedan. Sedan could relate to a new town hall built in Sedan circa 1613. Alternatively it could relate to the Palais des Prince, a part of the fortress of Sedan, begun in 1611.
