The Queen’s House (part of the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, UK)was commissioned by Anne of Denmark, wife of James I.
It’s one of the most important buildings in British architectural history, being the first consciously classical building to have been constructed in Britain. It was Inigo Jones’s first major commission after returning from his 1613–1615 grand tour of Roman, Renaissance and Palladian architecture in Italy.The Queen’s House now houses the Museum’s collection of fine art which includes several Tudor-related paintings.
