A Plan of Appuldurcombe, the seat of Sir Robert Worsley in the Isle of Wight
Medium: Ink on paper
Plan of Appuldurcombe House in the Isle of Wight. The House is situated between Ventnor and Shanklin, and during the 18th century it was one of the grandest houses on the island. The house was built, in the Baroque style, in 1701 by Sir Robert Worsley. It took seventy years to built the house which is unusual for the time because it had two wings, one each side of the front door. The house was finished by Robert’s great nephew Sir Richard Worsley who commissioned Capability Brown to landscape the gardens.
