Jones was Britain’s first classically inspired architect and also a talented designer of masques for the courts of James I and Charles I. This drawing exemplifies both talents. It is Jones’s modello for a scene in Ben Jonson’s masque, Time Vindicated to Himself and to His Honours. The performance took place in early 1623 in the Banqueting House itself, which had been constructed according to Jones’s designs between 1619 and 1622.
