Chiswick House is a Palladian villa that was built and designed by Richard Boyle, 3rd Earl of Burlington, who completed it in 1729. The garden of the house is one of the earliest examples of the English landscape garden, designed by William Kent. Burlington was one of 18th-century Britain's greatest patrons and art collectors and was known as the 'Apollo of the Arts'. He collected art from across Europe and filled his houses, including the villa at Chiswick with his treasures. Some pieces of his collection can still be seen at Chiswick House, alongside complementary paintings, family portraits and painted views of the house and garden.
