We came to see the gardens at Stourhead, which I have only ever seen in the summer and autumn, never in the pale light of winter.   We dashed round, past the grotto and Pantheon and up to the Temple of Apollo.

A river god:-

The gothic cottage:-

The Pantheon:-

  1. Certainly a mistake if you haven’t seen it recently or in detail : some lovely Richard Wilsons; a good Poussin; a bust of Charles I by Le Sueur (worth borrowing for The King’s Pictures exhibition ?) ; some unusual terracotta modelli by Rysbrack; and a superb collection of Chippendale.
