Talbot Rice Art Gallery

William Henry Playfair designed the neoclassical interior of the Georgian Room in the Talbot Rice Art Gallery. Talbot Rice is part of the University, accessed from the Old College quad.DSCN0662

It was designed as a Natural History Museum, but has also been used as a reading room.
I love the plasterwork. It’s like being inside a giant iced cake. I don’t think I looked at a single painting. I was too busy admiring the plasterwork.
