Whitton House Middlesex

Artist: Roger Morris
Date: 1732-1739

Roger Morris 1695-1749 was described in 1724 as bricklayer, but by the time he paid his rates in 1730 he was a ‘gentleman’.  His career as an architect was linked to Colen Campbell to whom he was an assistant and also and Henry Herbert, Earl of Pembroke. He designed the Column of Victory for Blenheim Palace. In 1732 he was engaged by the 3rd Duke of Argyll, to design a house at Whitton.  The Duke was an enthusiastic gardener and the house was known for its gardens. He imported large numbers of exotic species of plants and trees. On his death, many of the plants, including mature trees, were moved by his nephew, to the Princess of Wales' new garden at Kew. This later became Kew Gardens and one of the trees, the rather spooky looking ‘Black Locust’ replanted in 1762, still survives to this day. The House was demolished in 1847.

What size frame do I need ?

Each piece of artwork in the Musée gallery has been resized to work perfectly with International 'A' paper sizes.

All you need to think about when framing your Musée artwork is that it needs tobe in the appropriate A sized frame.

This means that no part of your artworkwill be lost to cropping when choosing frame sizes. It also means thateverything will work proportionately in gallery walls, and print sets.

Quality

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.
