Abstract:
View of Horace Walpole's villa at Strawberry Hill, as seen from the southeast part of the property. The white structure is prominent in the center of the image, with ivy and shrubs obscuring the first floor of the house in places. A clump of trees separates the main house from another building on the left, only the edge of which is visible. On the lawn in front of the trees is an urn sitting on a pedestal. A cloud-filled sky is seen above.
