Belvidere, Great Park, Windsor
Engraver: Rooker, Michel Angelo
Medium: Aquatint, coloured
This royal lodge was known as Belvedere, and was built as a garden folly by George II's son, the Duke of Cumberland. It has a triangular plan with a tower on each corner. Each tower has a specific function: one is a staircase, one a library and one a china closet. A selection of trees were planted around the tower for a rural effect. It was situated on top of Shrub's Hill to ensure good views of the valley beneath.
