Robert Adam’s triumph, the most exquisite room in all England, is the Pink Room at Osterley Park in Middlesex. The tapestries were woven to Adam’s order by Jacques Neilson, director of the Gobelin works in Paris. On the walls, large gold medallions frame paintings of the loves of the gods, executed from designs by Boucher; the vases and garlands in intervening spaces follow designs of the flower painter Maurice Jacques. The sofa and armchairs were all created by Adam at his peak of refined delicacy. It has been many years since anyone actually sat in them.
