The Henry VII Chapel in Morning Light by Alexander Creswell Print

  • “The complicated details of the colourful heraldic banners, framing the filigree intricacies of the stone fan-vaulting of the ceiling, were a huge challenge, as was the fine tracery of the windows. The result is an exuberant display of the very best of English Tudor fine stonework, adorned by the colourful banners an anchored by the carved oak stalls with a beautifully shiny floor below. ” – Alexander Creswell from his book ‘Glimpses of Eternity: Watercolours of Westminster Abbey’.

    Alexander Creswell was first invited to visit the Abbey in 2011, arriving with his sketchbook to explore its intricacy and grandeur.  Between then and 2017, he has painted a collection of works capturing spectacular views, famous monuments and glimpses of moments in the life of the Abbey.  Many of these paintings study the effects of shifting light, from vivid sunlight to deep shadow, which illuminates and gives life to the subjects.

    This beautiful print is from an original watercolour painting titled ‘The Henry VII Chapel in Morning Light', part of Creswell’s recent exhibition of his stunning set of original watercolour paintings ‘Glimpses of Eternity: Watercolours of Westminster Abbey’.   It has been printed on 330 gsm Somerset paper which is a textured, cotton rag paper, and will arrive to you presented flat in a portfolio. This item has been designed and produced exclusively for Westminster Abbey.
