In Venice and England there was great interest in the work of the sixteenth-century architect Andrea Palladio. Antonio Visentini and Francesco Zuccarelli collaborated on a series of overdoor paintings for Smith showing important examples of British architecture in Palladio’s style. Mereworth Castle in Kent is a direct copy of Andrea Palladio’s Villa Rotonda near Vicenza.
