Jacques Rigaud

Jacques Rigaud, a French draughtsman and etcher, mainly of landscapes and topographical views, made numerous drawings of gardens in his home country. Sometime in the 1730s he visited England and found work drawing views of parks and country estates. Rigaud was commissioned by Richard Boyle, third Earl of Burlington to make a series of views of the gardens of Chiswick House. However, following a disagreement with Burlington, the drawings were never published. Charles Bridgeman, Royal Gardener at Stowe, later commissioned 16 views of the gardens he had designed at Stowe for a series of plates. The project cost Bridgeman £1,300 but the garden designer died before Rigaud’s prints were published under the direction of Bridgeman’s widow, Sarah.
