Object ID PAI7093
Description A panorama of Greenwich and distant London engraved in 1744 from a painting by Tillemans, then in the collection of the Earl of Radnor and still in private hands, though there is a version in the Bank of England collection. Only the King William dome of Greenwich Hospital is shown, with the King Charles and Queen Anne Courts, but there is no sign of the Queen Mary Court, which started construction in 1735. Since the spire of St Alfege's Church is included, the oil was presumably done between its construction in 1730 and Tillemans's death in 1734.
Date made 10 August 1744
