Atlantis The Palm

Atlantis The Palm
Despite its flimsy construction, this old banqueting house was much in demand from Elizabeth’s successor as a venue for masques.  James I and his wife Anne of Denmark loved this form of extravagant performance. Eventually, James commissioned a more substantial hall from architect Robert Stickells. However, the King was disappointed with the building. Although very ornate, a forest of columns supporting a gallery blocked much of the audiences’ view.
