Steel engraving by Winkles after C Moore, published by R Ackermann, London 1826. This scene first appeared in larger format as an aquatint in Ackermann and Nash’s 1826 Royal Pavilion publication and the original watercolour by A Pugin is in Brighton Art Gallery. This small steel plate was included in Ackermann’s 1826 edition of his hugely successful Christmas annual Forget Me Not.
The Music-Room Gallery was the room that led into the Pavilion’s Music (or Concert) Room proper.
