NOTES: This is a photograph of the final watercolour drawing. The tapestry was created for number 1 Holland Park, the home of Alexander Constantine Ionides, the art patron and collector, and was made by Morris & Co. on the Merton Abbey looms. The tapestry itself is now in the Victoria & Albert Museum.
NOTES: This palace was built for the Duke of Urbino, Federico da Montefeltro, between 1444 and 1472. Luciano Laurana from Dalmatia was appointed chief architect in 1468. The Sala degli Angeli is so called from the decorations around the fireplace executed by the sculptor Domenico Rosselli.
NOTES: The house was built by Thomas Bourchier, Archbishop of Canterbury, between 1456 and 1486. It passed into Royal possession in 1537 during the Dissolution. In 1566, Elizabeth I presented the house and estate to her cousin Thomas Sackville, 1st Earl of Dorset, who substantially remodelled the medieval palace between 1603 and 1608. The King's Bedroom is traditionally supposed to have been decorated for the reception of King James I, but the bed and complementary furnishings have subsequently be correctly dated to later in the 17th century.
