Alternative finished drawing and record drawings for a ceiling for the great drawing room, 1768 (3)

The design was executed as in Adam volumes 11/254 and 11/255, described by Harris as a 'simpler, bolder and more centralized composition' but with the pink parts painted yellow, and the green parts painted blue. Beard gives it as an example of how by the late 1760s 'the walls were more colourful and demanded stronger ceiling patterning and a close integration of all the elements'.

The plasterwork was carried out by Joseph Rose (for which he was paid £434 in 1770 and 1772), and the paintings by Antonio Zucchi (to unrelated subjects). A complete version of Adam volume 11/253 survives at Saltram.
