This print references a beautiful architectural elevation engraving from the 1700s of the Three Arch bridge in Chatsworth Park designed by James Paine.
Paine’s two bridges on the property, One Arch and Three Arch, were based on Italian prototypes, for example, the Roman bridge at Rimini in Italy.
Three Arch Bridge, which was started in c.1759 and substantially completed by 1761, carries the main drive over the River Derwent up to the house. The bridge was carefully angled so as to be seen from the house and orientated in such a way as to provide that last, striking view to the house from the entrance drive.
Printed and framed in house in our classical style elongated frames.
