Kedleston Hall Pairs 4/6

Following on from yesterdays image of the two fireplaces in the Marble Hall at Kedleston Hall here is another one but this time taken directly from the front of each.

 

Apart from the difference in the two paintings above the mantlepieces they appear to be almost identical.

These are wonderful fireplaces Brian. Again I like the marble. Great pictures.
Brian Walbey: They are lovely, too nice to have a fire burning in them.

Lovely framing of the paintings, Brian.

[Umh...can you get a bit closer to the actual paintings?]

[grin]
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray. There are some quite risqué paintings around this house, and there will be a couple of nudes here tomorrow, not ones that are to my taste though.

Indeed they do look identical at first glance, then you see the pictures and the inside of the fireplaces. Nice one Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Les, just for a change I saw this series in my mind as I was taking the shots.
Beautiful planning!
Brian Walbey: Yes for a change I actually envisaged this series as I was taking the shots, I'm not normally that imaginative.
beginning to love this series Brian
Brian Walbey: I'm really pleased to hear that Chantal.

Oh, what a fineness of style to decorate a fireplace. I would like to have a closer look at the paintings -the tondos look very delicate! I like your series very much!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine, I guessed you would like this sort of content.

The owners must have had endless wealth
Brian Walbey: They did Chris and the whole house was built to flaunt their wealth it appears. I think you would love it at Kedleston, Bill called in here on his way to Sheffield the other week.
Nicely presented, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Tom.
What fancy mantle work this is. Very ornate and wonderful. Excellent presentation.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary, I couldn't avoid taking these pictures.

This would make a super 'Spot the difference' game Brian.
Brian Walbey: It would indeed Chad.

These are very grand fireplaces, I really like the double images Brian smile
Brian Walbey: They are indeed Linda, thanks for your comment.
They certainly embraced symmetry in the construction Kedleston Hall, Brian. Excellent presentation!
Brian Walbey: They did Beverly, the stairs outside I showed earlier in the week and now this room, all planned to be that way I suspect.
The differences are, indeed, minimal Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes a bit difficult to pick out without a good look Bill.
They are works of art aren't they. Lovely Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes they are indeed Janet.
An interesting idea and series Brian.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks John.
This is all very clever Brian. What was the architect thinking of when he designed it like this. It is a good job that the paintings are diffent, otherwise one might get lost in the marble forest.
Brian Walbey: One might indeed Sheila, though it is a magnificent room.

This could be one of those spot the difference games Brian! Very clever.
Brian Walbey: It could well be Ingrid, thanks.

They have a taken a lot of effort to get a virtually identical look. This is very ornate.
Brian Walbey: The whole room is like this Alan, very ornate.

The painting on the left side depictures the love story of Apollo and Hyacinth.
Brian Walbey: Thanks for that Philine.
