View of the grounds of Bulstrode Park, the seat of the Duke of Portland. It had previously been the home of Judge Jefferies in the late 17th century and had included a formal garden. However as fashions changed in the 18th century, more informal, scattered landscaping was to become the ideal. It was fashionable to have ancient ruins in the gardens, and at Bulstrode there were actually genuine archaeological remains. These were thought to be the remains of a Danish Viking Camp. The artist is Samuel Hieronymous Grimm (1733-1794), a prodigious traveller and topographical artist.
