Elevation of the south facade of the jeu-de-paume (real tennis court) at the Chateau of Fontainebleau

RIBA125142
NOTES: This drawing is important as it shows possibly the earliest use in French architecture of the 'Palladian' window (this one probably deriving from Serlio, VII, cap.33).

Engraving of a fountain from Franco Fanelli's Varie architetture (Paris, 1661) (top); elevation of the upper chapel of Saint Saturnin in the Cour de l'Ovale at Fontainebleau, the side seen from the Stable Court (bottom)

RIBA125204
NOTES: The drawing of St Saturnin appears to be the only detailed representation of any part of this side of the church before it was masked when the ballroom wing was extended towards the Stable Court in 1603.

Study of the Town Hall, Brescia and sketch designs for the Villa Barbaro, Nymphhaeum, Maser: elevation, sketch projects; projects for palace elevations

RIBA125425
NOTES: This drawing is numbered X/15 recto in the Burlington-Devonshire Collection. It includes observations on the construction of the town hall in Brescia, designed in 1550 by Lodovico Beretta. It also shows Palladio's sketch designs of palace projects as well as a design for the Nymphaeum at Maser for Daniele and Marc'Antonio Barbaro.

Reconstruction of the Domus Augustana, Rome: plan, showing the site

RIBA125567
NOTES: This drawing is numbered XV/2 in the Burlington-Devonshire Collection.

Reconstruction of the Domus Augustana, Rome: sketches for the reconstruction of the ground plan, profiles of bases

RIBA125579
NOTES: This drawing is numbered XV/11 recto in the Burlington-Devonshire Collection.

Preliminary design for the Queen's House, Greenwich, London: ground floor plan

RIBA126204
Jones, Inigo (1573-1652)
NOTES: This early drawing of ca.1616-1618 is here tentatively related to the Queen's House, for parts of its plan (the 40ft cube hall adjacent to a circular staircase) bear a remarkable resemblance to these parts of the house. If this is a correct ascription (and this is by no means certain) it would have been projected prior to the decision to build the house across the public road. The plan is not dissimilar to that of the Villa Aldobrandini. This drawing is part of the Burlington-Devonshire Collection.

Design for the new palace of 1638, Somerset House, Strand, London: composite elevaton of details from a Doric ordered facade and two studies (in pencil) of rusticated windows

RIBA126219
Jones, Inigo (1573-1652)
NOTES: This drawing formed part of Lord Burlington's sequence of Palladio drawings.

Preliminary design for the north front of the Queen's House, Greenwich, London: incomplete elevation

RIBA126220
Jones, Inigo (1573-1652)
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.

Preliminary design for the Banqueting House, Whitehall, London: preliminary plan for the basement

RIBA126221
Jones, Inigo (1573-1652)
NOTES: This drawing formed part of Lord Burlington's sequence of Palladio drawings. This preliminary plan must belong to the very earliest stage of conception. The great hall is flanked by narrow anterooms as shown in elevation on the preliminary design at Chatsworth which is accompanied by a plan of the ground floor (Chatsworth 52-53). However, this basement plan is probably an even earlier idea, for the elevation is completely pilastered, with paired pilasters at the angles of the main front and pilastered centrepiece. Both plans are renditions of the Star Chamber project of 1617.
