King’s College Chapel, Cambridge, United Kingdom


David Roberts (1796–1864, Scotland)

Gothic paintings

David Roberts was a Scottish landscape painter, known for a prolific series of detailed lithograph prints of Egypt and the Near East that he produced from sketches he made during long tours of the region (1838–1840). These and his large oil paintings of similar subjects made him a prominent Orientalist painter. He was elected as a Royal Academician in 1841.

Cambridge i // November 2017

Taken at King’s College Chapel. There was a series of fantastic little exhibits off the main walkway of the chapel about the history of the building, as well as the impact that the War of the Roses had on Cambridge. In Room Five there was a breakdown of the architecture that made King’s College Chapel unique, with model examples in a glass case adjacent.
