Description

Large painting of the inside of a cathedral, giving a strong feeling of space and scale. The view looks up the aisle with arches to either side. Every part of the building is decorated. Tiny figures of people sit in pews and flock the open space in the foreground emphasing the size of the building.

From the collection of Alexander Chalmers.
