The Queen's House Book

The Queen's House

Regular price £5.00 £5.00 Sale

The Queen’s House, built by Inigo Jones between 1616 and about 1638, is of unique significance as the earliest English building in the Italian Renaissance manner, generally called Palladian.

This wonderfully illustrated book contextualises the House within its setting of Maritime Greenwich, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From its origins as a royal residence, to its use by the Royal Naval Asylum and Greenwich Hospital School and more recently as the home to the National Maritime Museum's vast painting collection, the book explores the architectural significance of the house and provides an insight into its cultural and social uses.

Beautifully illustrated throughout with nearly 100 images from the National Maritime Museum’s collection, this book is a delightful mix of historical prints, oil paintings and architectural photography.

The author, Dr Pieter van der Merwe, is general editor of Royal Museums Greenwich and has published extensively on the topics of Greenwich and Maritime History.
