About this artwork

Robert Adam transformed British architecture. With his brother, James, he created a new style based on an  inventive use of classical ideas which appealed to rich patrons for both country and town houses.  Interiors designed by Robert Adam typically include ceilings with decoration in low plaster relief around painted panels.  In Edinburgh, Charlotte Square, Register House and the Old College of the University are all examples of their work.
