The Music Room, Brighton Pavilion by Augustus Charles Pugin is a preparatory drawing for one of the 1826 'Views of the Royal Pavilion at Brighton', published by John Nash. It shows the ornate Music Room designed by Frederick Crace for the Prince Regent. The figures in the picture are drawn from life by John Stephanoff and several can be identified.
Two Chinese Pagodas from the Yung Chen period, part of original furnishings of the Music Room at the Royal Pavilion, were probably supplied to the Prince Regent in 1815 by Fogg's. Each has nine storeys, richly decorated, with gilt-bronze kylins as finials at each angle of the roof section.
