Abstract:
A view of the north front of Horace Walpole's home Strawberry Hill with a procession lead by a group of monks proceeding away from the viewer toward the entrance of the villa. Also on the road are a coach and a post-chaise with a dog racing along side, supposedly on their way to Hampton Court. On the far right along the fence that encloses the property opposite, is a fountain whose spout is in the shape of a lion's head.
