Theatrical Performances at Windsor Castle - the "Green Room", 1850. Entertainment for Queen Victoria and family at the royal residence, scene showing '...actors dressed for "Charles the XII.," and others who, engaged in the first piece, have doffed their costumes for their usual dresses. "Charles the XII." was preceded by "King Rene's Daughter," translated by the Hon. Edmund Phipps, from the German version of the Danish poem of Henric Herz...the State Ante-room...is noticeable as showing the style in which many of the old state rooms had their ceilings decorated. The subject of this pictorial ceiling is the Banquet of the Gods...a fine specimen of the abilities of Verrio...The carved festoons of flowers and game which are above the fire-place, over some looking-glasses, and the recessed doors...are the handywork of Grinling Gibbons'. From "Illustrated London News", 1850.
