I’ve done blogs on Somerset House before. One of the pleasures of working in Blackfriars is that it provides frequent opportunity to walk through its monumental courtyard, free now of the parking of tax officials and I prefer it free of skating, so that one can see and appreciate the qualities of William Chambers’s restrained style of scholarly French classicism, informed by his training in Paris under J.F. Blondel and his studies in Rome, together with sculpture by the first generation of RAs:-
One thought on “Somerset House”
Yes, at its best when the Courtyard is clear. Your entry for it is yet another example for your excellent eye as a photographer : pilasters, capitals etc. Thank you.
