Interior view

Syon House, Brentford, Middlesex

The picture shows the State Dining Room, an ornate room filled with Corinthian columns and marble statues. The decoration of Syon House gives some idea of the way in which Robert Adam was able to interpret and enhance motifs from a wide variety of classical sources.
