Design for a ceiling for the staircase, 1772, as executed with minor alterations (1)
Adam's ceiling for the staircase was executed in accordance with the drawing, albeit with roundels of acanthus rather than figurative medallions. It underwent alterations during the nineteenth century, but Adam's ceiling was reinstated by the WMF during their recent restoration works. See scheme notes.
Within the drawings collection of the Yale Center for British Art at New Haven there is a complete copy of Adam volume 12/98.
