Our curator Susanne Groom presents an introduction to the Tijou Screens at Hampton Court Palace.
Jean Tijou's most notable work was the twelve panels of the screen, which now bears his name, and can be seen, where it was installed in 1701, at the river end of the Privy Garden.

The screen was the first exhibit in the new Victoria & Albert Museum before being returned to Hampton Court.
