Megan from #thatmuse in #london here! Need a quick break from exploring the long halls of the #V&A? Grab a seat in the James Gibbs- designed parlour which once overlooked Henrietta Street in London. Built to create a sense of symmetry, one of the doors is actually false! Can you guess which one it might be? #london #museum #thatmuse #museumfun #treasurehunts #jamesgibbs#travelingkids #parlour #britishgalleries #inspiration

E.B. White’s steeple, an 1850 addition to the third St. Philips completed in the 1830’s immediately after the second fire, and seen here above the South portico. White’s design returns to the precedent set by Gibbs at St. Martin in the Fields, thereby making an unmistakable statement tying the aesthetics of the building to Protestant, and more specifically in both cases - Anglican worship. There are numerous other similarities, including the interior, drawn up by Joseph Hyde and heavily debated by the congregation (deciding on the Gibbs style columns and arches instead of a Greek revival alternative or restored Doric piers from the previous iteration) but also some noteworthy differences including the chancel and the choir added by Albert Simons in the 20th c., and not found in Gibbs’ auditory Church design. Swipe for a rare photograph showing the interior pre-Simons addition, including a few other surprises. Notice the gas light fixtures mounted to the balcony panels, and the window above the altar. .

This beautiful church very nearly got demolished to make way for the road.

Bookish vibes in the enchanting library at Newbridge House, part of the original house, designed by James Gibbs and executed in the years just before and after 1750, with its rather wonderful stuccoed ceiling of the same period, in a late Baroque style that remained fashionable in Ireland in this period. Heaven. #historicinteriors #interiordesign #interiors #jamesgibbs #baroque #georgianarchitecture #architecture #stucco #ceiling #library #books #18thcentury #countryhouses #maximalism #moreismore

My oil-painting of The Queen's Temple at Stowe Landscape Gardens in Buckinghamshire. (Now in an American collection). The Queen’s Temple was originally designed by James Gibbs and built during 1742-48. It was then called the Lady’s Temple as it was designed for Lady Cobham to entertain her friends. It was reworked in neoclassical style in the 1770s, when its south front acquired an imposing 3-bay Corinthian portico and the north front a projecting pedimented centre with curved Ionic portico. The architect was probably Thomas Pitt. The interior was remodeled in 1790 by Vincenzo Valdrè to commemorate George III’s recovery from madness with the help of scagliola columns and an elaborate plaster ceiling. Sleter’s ladies vanished from the walls and their places were taken by plaster reliefs, signed and dated by the sculptor Charles Peart, 1790. The temple was now renamed the Queen’s Temple in honour of Queen Charlotte after whom the building was renamed. The floor has a Roman tessellated pavement moved from Foscott Manor 1839-40.

The pink and white two-story Great Hall of Ragley Hall, Warwickshire, by James Gibbs, although he died before its completion.

For a brief moment I thought I was looking at George Frederic Handel, whose statue is actually nearby, but this is Mr James Gibbs - one of the most distinguished and influential architects of the first half of the 18th century. Gibbs was a Tory and a Roman Catholic. He travelled widely and studied with no less than Carlo Fontana. Gibbs amassed a very substantial library of nearly 700 books and owned several houses in London as well as great number of paintings. His most famous building is undoubtedly the church of Saint Martin-in-the-Fields but one should also mention St Mary le Strand, redesign of St Bartholomew’s Hospital, Senate House at Cambridge University or numerous stately homes including his involvement in creating designs for the house of Cannons commissioned by the 1st Duke of Chandos. We must also remember that this was the time of many great architects such as Hawksmoor, Vanbrugh and Wren. He is buried at St Marylebone Parish Church where I had my Royal Academy of Music graduation ceremony. #art #historyofarchitecture #baroquearchitecture #jamesgibbs #art #london #england #europeanart #historychannel #statue #sculpture
