Subject matter
This photograph depicts the back of Osborne House, Queen Victoria's summer home on the Isle of Wight. Taken from the foot of the garden, the photograph offers an expansive but untraditional view of the palatial home. Meatyard chose a viewpoint somewhat below the house itself, which offers privileged access to Victoria's private residence while making the house seem grand and distant rather than intimate and accessible.

Physical Description
View of a large estate taken from the garden.
