*Rococo Revisited
View of the Library, Kirtlington Park (The Metropolitan Museum of Art)
Kirtlington Park, in Oxfordshire, was widely regarded as one of the most beautiful Rococo rooms in England. Sir James Dashwood (1715–1779), baronet, devoted much of his energy and fortune to the building and furnishing of Kirtlington Park. 
Sir James’s thrice great-granddaughter Susan Alice Dashwood (British, active 1876–1900)  painted in 1876 and 1891  watercolor views of the room with its original furnishings.
