Sketch for the ceiling of the Painted Hall

A fully worked-up design, in the general final format but with considerable differences from that executed. The west end is to the right, east to the left. The latter, for example, does not appear to contain the identifiable historical figures of Copernicus, Tycho Brahe, and John Flamsteed, all finally included. The pyramid (symbolizing the stability of a regime) which here appears in the centre above William and Mary, with a classical colonnaded circular building, was later transferred to the design of the Hanoverian west wall, the drum becoming Wren's dome of St Paul's Cathedral.
