In 1726, Lord Burlington (1694–1753), an admirer of the sixteenth-century architect Andrea Palladio, proceeded to raise a free-standing villa on London’s outskirts that launched a radical new taste in architecture. The Palladian Revival traces the evolution of the building’s design, reproducing paintings, watercolours, drawings, plans, and elevations.
