This view of Chiswick House and gardens was commissioned by the house’s owner and architect, Lord Burlington, not long after his new villa was completed. It provides a glimpse of the old house, a Jacobean mansion that was demolished in 1788. The painting is part of a larger set that may once have hung at one of Burlington’s other houses as a reminder of Chiswick when he was away.
