  • “This view of the Quire portrays the intimate feel of the space. A glimpse through the Quire screen to the West Door and West Window above serves to accentuate the apparent distance. The gilding of the Quire stalls glistens in the light of a sunny winter day, the low angle acting as a strong diagonal to emphasise the volume of space.” – 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 Quire Looking West’, 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.
