Abstract

Holkham Hall was completed in the middle of the eighteenth century, a monument of the Italianate taste of Lord Burlington and the Earl of Leicester. The magnificent sculpture, pictures, tapestry, furniture, and the library itself, are part of the general architectural scheme. This summer the state rooms have been opened to the public for one day a week.
