Part of the Door of the Temple
Part of the Door of the Temple.
The Dressing of this Door, though uncommon, has a bold and pleasing Effect. The Ornament upon the Swelling Moulding is of very fine Workmanship. The Modillions in the Cornice I are not perpendicular over the Trusses, and offend the Eye greatly. The Angular Modillion, which is to be found in many Parts of this Palace, as well as in other Buildings of the Ancients, seems in this Door to be no additional Ornament.
