Description

A watercolour showing Repton's proposed changes to the landscape in front of the stables at Brighton Pavilion, by means of a flap. With the flap closed, the view is overgrown and dominated by trees. The flap lifts to illustrate a garden full of flowers and a square pool at the centre, with a clear view to the stables. The building's façade is reflected in the pool.

This drawing is part of Repton's Red Book for Brighton Pavilion (970493) submitted to George, Prince of Wales (later George IV) in 1806.

Descriptive Medium: 'Pen and ink with watercolour over pencil', 'pen and ink, watercolour, pencil'
