Abstract :
Presents evidence for the positive identification of Tart Hall, London, a property of Lady Arundel, in Hollar's etching Spring, one of a series of allegorical prints depicting fashionably dressed women set against topographical backgrounds. Ground plans and a bird's eye view show progressive accretions at the house from ca.1633-1725. Examines the connections between the Arundels and other buildings in Hollar's series. The birth of Hollar's child at Tart Hall in 1643 is also indicated in the etching. Examines the significance of Lady Arundel's Catholic connections and closeness to George Gage. Submits that she drew inspiration for Tart Hall from their visits to the Veneto and that much of the design of her casino - a hybrid of Venetian-vernacular and English architecture - was probably her own. Although Nicholas Stone was paid for work on the house in 1638-1639, rejects the previously held assumption that he designed it. Two inventories throw light on the architectural features and layout of the house in 1641, which was eventually demolished in the 1740s. ;
