  • Though we know little of how Thomas Sandby received his architectural training, he became architect to the Duke of Cumberland and was named the first professor of Architecture at the Royal Academy. In 1774 William Lock, father of the sitter in Lawrence's charcoal portrait (cat. 13 [1994.11]) acquired the estate of Norbury Park and wrote to Thomas Sandby from Rome commissioning him to build a house. Sandby built the house and sent off a ground plan, elevation, and drawings of the estate from the house, one of which must have been this view towards Boxhill.
