  • Production Details: [before 1793]
  • Language: English
  • Description: Summary: View of a large house with a pediment and two wings; a fence in front; trees on either side. Inscribed with title in brown ink along lower edge below image.
  • Identifier: System number: 004978800
  • Notes: Originally constructed for Sir Peter Mews in 1720, Hinton Park was largely rebuilt barely half a century later after a fire in 1777. The new house was probably very similar to its predecessor, although it was soon enlarged with side wings probably designed by Robert Nasmith in 1793. These do not appear on this drawing, and their absence provides us with a probable terminus ante quem for the execution of this drawing, which may have been created soon after the completion of the main house.
