  • This unique frame decoration encases a Canaletto painting of Westminster Abbey. The original oil painting, Westminster Abbey with a procession of the Knights of the Bath, is the earliest work of art to depict the Abbey’s iconic west towers.

    The painting, 100cm by 100cm, was commissioned by Joseph Wilcocks, the Dean of Westminster from 1731–1756 and bequeathed to the Abbey in 1792 by his son. Since then it has hung in the Abbey’s Deanery and been occasionally loaned for public display.

    Richly executed in Canaletto’s signature style, it was painted around 1749, four years after the west towers were completed. It shows the grand procession from the Abbey to the House of Lords of the newly installed Knights of the Order of the Bath, which had taken place on 26th June that year.
