Headfort House, Ireland : Ceiling of the Front Hall

Artist: Robert Adam

Date: 1771

Robert Adam (1728 – 1792) was one of the most important British architects working in the Neoclassical style – a movement in the decorative and visual arts that drew inspiration from the 'classical' art and culture of Ancient Greece and Rome. Born in Scotland, Robert Adam was the son of the established architect William Adam. His studies were interrupted by Jacobite rising in 1745 and the arrival of Bonnie Prince Charlie. In 1754 he embarked on a Grand Tour, spending 5 years in France and Italy. On his return, Adam established his own practice in London with his brother James. Adam developed a distinctive and highly individual style which he insisted was applied to all elements of interior decoration, from ceilings, walls and floors to furniture, carpets, silver and ceramics. The 'Adam Style', as it became known, was enormously popular and had a lasting influence on British architecture and interior design.Adam was appointed as royal architect in 1761, together with Sir William Chambers. Ironically despite his fame, Adam was rarely called upon to build completely new houses. His work mainly consisted of remodelling existing houses, as well as contributions to Edinburgh's townscape. When he died in 1792 he left nearly 9,000 drawings. He was buried in Westminster Abbey.

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.
