View of the Crystal Palace as built in Hyde Park for the Great Exhibtion, July 1851
Mends perhaps drew this view across the Serpentine to Joseph Paxton's Crystal Palace just before his ship, the 'Trafalgar' sailed for the Mediterranean in July 1851.While it is not exceptional, and probably rather underpopulated, his drawing catches the liquid reflections off the water and the way this pioneering prefabricated glass building, of enormous scale, fitted into the Park.
