Caption: Drury Lane Theatre. 19th-century artwork of the Henry Holland rebuilding of the Drury Lane Theatre, Covent Garden, London, UK. This building, the third and largest theatre on this site, burned down in February 1809. This artwork is from 'The Microcosm of London', a series of 104 hand-coloured aquatints depicting London buildings and scenes. They were published by Rudolph Ackermann between 1808 and 1810, and then collected in three folio volumes. The artworks combined architectural details by Charles Augustus Pugin, and human figures drawn by Thomas Rowlandson. This aquatint, published 1 August 1808, was engraved by John Bluck.
