In Regents Park, London, 1826
Artist: Scharf, George senior
Medium: Pencil on paper
This carefully executed drawing is of the facade to a town house in Regent's Park, London.
The area of Regent's Park is one of the most superb examples of Regency town planning to remain in the city. The park and terraces were designed by John Nash in 1812 for the Prince Regent, after whom it was titled. The majority of houses were built by 1830, despite the delays caused by the Napoleonic Wars. The park has an open-air theatre where Shakespearean plays are conducted in the summer, and a large zoo that can be found on the north side.
