Peers Lobby transported to Italy

How Art and artistic influence traveled from one country to another before the age of instant communications and even photographs.Found on the Internet, in the Parliamentary Art collection, a copy of R Dudley’s watercolour of the 1st Baron Campbell, Lord Chancellor of Britain, painted 1861.

Also downloaded a copy of the centrefold of the Illustrated London News dated 26 February 1868.

Compare them to the actual decor of the Central Reception Room in Castello Dal Pozzo, built by Pulan for the Marquis Claudio Dal Pozzo d’Annone in 1878.

The similarities are surprising exact, allowance being made for the replacement of the British coat-of-arms with that of the Dal Pozzo family.

Come and visit. We would be delighted to show you round. It is even possible to dine in the Central Salone on certain evenings.
