Published in a periodical called 'The Builder', this plan shows the alterations to Bridgewater House which aim to make the gallery independent of the rest of the building, facilitating public access to Lord Ellesmere's art collection. Bridgewater House was built to the Italianate design of Charles Barry on the former site of Cleveland House, and was completed in 1854.
