Photographic Print. Unicorn house seen through the Piazza Arch in Portmeirion village.
The pink Palladian house with 4 white Doric pilasters and plaster unicorn was built in 1964 in an elevated position, creating an imposing sight through the arch. The architect of Portmeirion, Sir Clough Williams-Ellis wanted to show that 'a very beautiful natural site could be developed without spoiling it' and he was one of the pioneers of the ecological and conservationist movements. He fought for beauty, 'that strange necessity'.
In Paintings in Gouache there are 4 paintings about Portmeirion and The Prisoner.
