EDITORS COMMENTS This print takes us back in time to the enchanting Chiswick Gardens in London. The image, captured by Pieter Andreas Rysbrack in 1728-9, showcases a mesmerizing view of the Patte d'oie, or goose foot-shaped avenue. As we delve into this picturesque scene, our eyes are immediately drawn to the magnificent statue of Samson slaying the Philistine at its center. The composition is further enhanced by the presence of two remarkable structures that flank either side of the statue. On one side stands the Casina, also known as the Bagnio - an elegant building exuding grandeur and charm. Its architectural beauty perfectly complements the serene surroundings. On the other side lies a domed Pagan Temple or Pantheon, adding an air of mystery and intrigue to this already magical setting. The play of light and shadow cast upon these structures creates a dramatic effect that adds depth and dimension to Rysbrack's masterpiece. Amidst all this splendor, nature thrives abundantly with lush greenery enveloping every corner. Towering trees gracefully line up along Georgian-style avenues, creating a symphony between man-made marvels and natural wonders. As we gaze upon this photograph from Historic England Photo Library, we are transported back in time to experience firsthand the timeless beauty and tranquility that Chiswick Gardens has offered for centuries.
