These wall lights reflect the refined interiors which characterize the work of the prolific architect James Wyatt (d. 1813), a worthy rival to Robert Adam. Like Adam, Wyatt was informed by his training in Rome. Both architects designed and supervised the interiors and exteriors of their projects to the minutest detail - including furniture, plasterwork and ironwork. A room elevation drawing by Wyatt showing the design and integration of furniture, architecture and upholstery is illustrated in J. Fowler and J. Cornforth, English Decoration in the 18th Century, 1974, p. 29, fig. 13. His plasterwork 'candelabrum' designs for the Dining Room at Heveningham Hall, Suffolk reflect a similar combination of severely classical motifs combined with finely executed floral bouquets (C. Hussey, Mid Georgian 1760-1800, Suffolk, 1955, p. 173, fig. 349).
