Mr. Heidegger's House

Last week's Country Life included a feature on No. 4, Maids of Honour Row in Richmond, which has just been sold. In the 18th century the house belonged to the theatrical impressario Heidegger, with whom Handel collaborated on a number of occasions. In the 1740's Heidegger had the hall painted by one of his theatrical scene painters. A fascinating link to the rather ephemeral art of theatrical scene painting.
