Scope and Content Decorated panel in dining room in Inveraray Castle, Argyll and Bute John, 5th Duke of Argyll, inherited the title in 1770, and began to transform the interior of Inveraray Castle in 1782 in accordance with fashionable taste. French influence can be seen in the tapestry, furniture and carpets installed in the 1780s. This large panel has a fluted gilt frame made of plaster. The central allegorical scene is surrounded by leaf-scrolls, urns, floral garlands and spirals. Much of the painting was executed by Irrouard le Girardy, a Frenchman, of whom little is known. The architect Robert Mylne (1733-1814) was responsible for much interior decoration of the castle. He made plans for the complete decoration of the south-west saloon and all the state rooms on the north-east side, including the dining room. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
