world pictures Northern India: Lucknow of the Nawabs

A palace building. Murray says that the whole place is built "in the vilest of taste". Fergusson is only marginally less brutal. He writes (II, 326) that the Kaiserbagh is "by no means unlike the Louvre and Tuileries... but instead of the beautiful stone of Paris, all was brick and plaster; and instead of the appropriate details of that palace, the buildings surrounding the great court at Lucknow are generally two storeys in height and singularly various in design... crowned by domes such as Rome or Italy never saw, and the whole painted with colours as crude as they are glaring."
