St. James's Park from the Terrace of No. 10 Downing Street. Oil on canvas. The garden of No. 10 Downing Street is shown in the foreground, surrounded by high brick wall. Two gardeners are at work, one rolling a gravel path, the other tidying the edge of grass with a pair of shears. On the terrace are two figures. On the left is Sir Robert Walpole or possibly Lord Wilmington. On the right is George Pitt who is ccompanied by a number of people. In the background is a view of St. James's Park showing the path leading to the East end of the Mall.
