Wollaton Hall: pilasters and Aristotle
Wollaton Hall: pilasters and Aristotle
"Wollaton [built 1580-88] displays any amount of gaudy Netherlandish ornament: strapwork in the gables, angular bands round the pilasters, busts of Plato, Aristotle, Virgil, Diana, Hercules and many others in circular niches framed by cartouches, and so on" (Nikolaus Pevsner).
