Lot Essay

The stool's design is derived from C. H. Tatham's Etchings Representing the Best Examples of Ancient Ornamental Architecture Drawn from the Originals in Rome and other parts of Italy, during the years 1794, 1795 and 1796, 1799, pl. 77. Tatham had been encouraged by his mentor, the architect Henry Holland, to study and collect antique fragments and sculpture: the editions of Etchings, which appeared from 1799-1810 are of the first importance in forming the new archaeological appreciation which Thomas Hope would go onto synthesise so dramatically.
