    Vue D’une partie du Voxhal de Londres

    The Temple of Comus was named… after the god of cheer and good food. The building, which, although primarily devoted to dining, allowed for the appreciation of the arts and music as well as polite conversation in civilised surroundings. Initially, the building was “classical in style, with a colonnade of Ionic columns supporting a straight entablature, topped with urn finials; the semicircle flowed in a smooth curve out of the straight colonnade of the northern range of supper-boxes.” However, the designer also incorporated Gothic arches and “broad-ramped scrolls that acted as buttresses for the dome” and other unorthodox details. “The apparent breaking of architectural rules, mingling different styles in the same building, was deliberate and entirely typical of the unorthodox design of the English Rococo, which aimed to create playful, light-hearted works.”

    The Burning of the Vauxhall Railway Station, seen from Battersea-Bridge

    The Burning of the Vauxhall Railway Station, seen from Battersea-Bridge, 1856. '...a sudden alarm of fire arose, and the same instant it was discovered that a small ante-room adjoining the booking-office, and occupied by the clerk in charge, was in flames. In a very few moments the fire had extended to the booking office itself; and so remarkably rapid was its progress that the officials present, so far from being able to stay its ravages, were compelled to make a hasty retreat...the fire travelled with the rapidity ot electricity, seizing upon the whole of the offices, then extending to the ticket depots, and finally seizing upon the roof of the station; and burning both upwards and downwards, it assumed such a formidable aspect as to convince everyone that the entire station was doomed to be wholly destroyed...[fortunately] not a single person was injured'.

    Westminster from Vauxhall

    A hand-coloured engraving by George Cooke of a watercolour by Samuel Prout showing a view across the Thames from the Vauxhall shore towards Westminster Cathedral and the Palace of Westminster. Taken from Cooke's 'Views in London and its Vicinity'. In the immediate foreground we are presented with a scene outside a Lambeth boat-builders yard while barges and wherries crowd the river in the middle distance. On the Westminster shore we can see St John's Smith Square and beyond that the massy bulk of Westminster Abbey, later to sit in a somewhat diminished relation to Barry and Pugin's rebuilt Houses of Parliament of 1840-1876 Samuel Prout was a great favourite of John Ruskin who went as far as to comment in 1844, "Sometimes I tire of Turner, but never of Prout". Prout was noted for his paintings of great European cities and picturesque ruins and particularly for his ability to imbue his subjects with 'breadth and largeness'. George Cooke was leading English line-engraver of the 19th Century and commissioned eight of leading British landscape artists to create works, including this, for his 1826 collection of 'Views in London and its Vicinity'. This is a first edition of 1827. Interestingly the old Palace of Westminster, depicted here, would burn to the ground only seven years after this work was created.
