This print presents the pavilion dressed up for an elegant night soiree. It shows the façade elevation of Brighton Royal Pavilion which was gloriously remodelled by architect John Nash in Indo-Saracenic style. The background of this print is a section of an Asian decorative motif from ‘The Grammar of Ornament’ a book by Victorian architect Owen Jones.
John Nash remodelled The Brighton Royal Pavilion into what we can see today in glorious Indo-Saracenic style. The works of the Marine Pavilion began in 1815 and took seven years to complete. George chose architect John Nash who proposed an Indian style in response to the design of the new stable block. Nash was also inspired by landscape gardener Humphrey Repton (who had published designs for a new palace based on Indian architectural forms) and based many of his ideas on a publication called Oriental Scenery by Thomas and William Daniell (1795-1808).
The complex composition of domes, towers and minarets created a romantic exterior. Either side of the central large dome are two towers that serviced the interior rooms over the Saloon, one with a staircase, the other with a hoist. To achieve a picturesque effect the rendered surfaces of the Royal Pavilion were painted to create a unified vision of a building made of Bath stone.
