This highly illustrated book contextualises the Queen's House within its setting of Maritime Greenwich, a World Heritage Site. From its origins as a royal residence designed by Inigo Jones, to its use by the Royal Naval Asylum and Greenwich Hospital School and more recently as the home to the National Maritime Museum's vast painting collection, the book explores the architectural significance of the house and provides an insight into its cultural and social uses. Beautifully illustrated throughout with nearly 100 images from the National Maritime Museum's collection, this book is a delightful mix of historic prints, scenic paintings and up to date photography.
