The decorative evolution of the John Adam Dining Room at Arniston House

The decorative evolution of the John Adam Dining Room at Arniston House This paper examines the decorative evolution of the Dining Room at Arniston House in Midlothian, built by John Adam in the mid 1750s. It proposes John Dawson as the craftsman responsible for executing the plasterwork and presents archival evidence to support this. It explores the possibility that Dawson's work in the Yellow Drawing Room at Hopetoun House helped determine the scheme adopted for the Arniston Dining Room. It also considers the part played by John Hope, Second Earl of Hopetoun, and Robert Adam in obtaining paintings to complete the decorative scheme. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Architectural Heritage Edinburgh University Press

Abstract

This paper examines the decorative evolution of the Dining Room at Arniston House in Midlothian, built by John Adam in the mid 1750s. It proposes John Dawson as the craftsman responsible for executing the plasterwork and presents archival evidence to support this. It explores the possibility that Dawson's work in the Yellow Drawing Room at Hopetoun House helped determine the scheme adopted for the Arniston Dining Room. It also considers the part played by John Hope, Second Earl of Hopetoun, and Robert Adam in obtaining paintings to complete the decorative scheme.
