These murals show an imaginary scene from one of the garden parties which used to be held by the Earl of Ilchester in the grounds of Holland House in the 1870s. The costumes were carefully researched and
the artist has included portraits of many of the Friends of Holland Park (who commissioned the murals) and their friends, so that each face is of a different and real person.
