“There’s a table which becomes a set of steps which the public are invited to go up to get a better view of the Leopard. It’s a library table. In the Regency period, you’d find a table in the library and it would unfold, metamorphose, into a ladder to access the higher library shelves.”

Jo Joelson and Bruce Gilchrist of London Fieldworks discuss the leopard itself, bought by the fourth Duke of Newcastle, and the artwork inspired by it.
