This painting celebrating the work of Andrea Palladio is one of the series of overdoors by Antonio Visentini and Francesco Zuccarelli, which probably decorated Smith’s villa at Mogliano. Designed by Sir John Vanbrugh (1664–1726), Eastbury, in Dorset, was begun in 1718 for George Dodington (1662–1720) and continued for his nephew, the politician George Bubb Dodington (1691–1762). It is possible that the Bagnio at Eastbury was chosen as the subject because it was regarded as more Palladian in style than the main house.
