The Great Exotic Stove at Kew

Artist: Sir William Chambers

Date:1763

Chambers (1723-1796) was a Scottish Swedish architect based in London. Among his best-known works are Somerset House, London, and the pagoda at Kew. Chambers was a founder member of the Royal Academy, but he was a prolific and very popular architect working on over 90 projects. Between 1740 and 1749 he was employed by the Swedish East India Company making three voyages to China where he studied Chinese architecture and decoration. Returning to Europe, he studied architecture in Paris and spent five years in Italy. Then, in 1755, he moved to London, where he established an architectural practice. In 1757he was appointed architectural tutor to the Prince of Wales, later George III, and in 1766, along with Robert Adam, Architect to the King. From around 1758 to the mid-1770s, Chambers concentrated on building houses for the nobility and was one of the leading Palladian-style architects. He was the major rival of Adam in British Neoclassicism. Chambers died in London in 1796. He is buried in Poets' Corner in Westminster Abbey..

Our papers are loved for their vibrant tonal range and the handmade feel of their beautiful texture. They are 100% cotton based which gives an aesthetic expected with traditional fine art techniques.

Each piece is printed to order in house in our own print studio and delivered in sustainable packaging.

All Musée museum quality prints are professionally mounted on 2.4mm acid free art board ready to free stand or frame. Mounted prints also help to preserve the qualty of the edges and keep the prints perfectly flat with no risk of cockling. Cockling is the process by which a print starts to ripple due to changing levels of ambient moisture which are naturally present in the air in all our homes. Also, when you decide to either change your Musée artwork in your frames or swap them out for a new find, a Musée mounted print will stay flat and safe whilst in storage.
