Somerset House

Somerset House
as seen from the South Bank. The South Wing (in view) housed the Admiralty. The arches at the base allowed boats to enter the building before the embankment was built. The Strand block housed various learned societies, including the Royal Academy, which the architect of Somerset House, William Chambers, was instrumental in founding, and it was here at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibitions that Turner and Constable rivalled each other for the distinction of being Britain's greatest painter.
