    Prince of Wales Lodge in the south-east corner of Hyde Park next to Hyde Park Corner was built by Decimus Burton in 1825. Nash was the son of a London builder who trained as an architectural draughtsman at the Royal Academy schools. He travelled widely on the continent and is well known for his Paris views. The present watercolour is likely to date from before 1834 when he moved from London to Brighton.
