Three plaques from a column, De Grieksche A, Adrianus Kocx, c. 1690

h 62cm × w 62cm. More details

The decoration on these plaques was based on designs by Daniël Marot, who may have played a pivotal role in furnishing and decorating the Water Gallery at Hampton Court Palace. The designs were not executed on the more usual smaller tiles, but on larger planes. Making such large plaques must have represented an enormous technical challenge. Each column was originally four or fourand- a-half plaques high.
