19th-Century Hand-Coloured Engraving, Gothic Cathedral Interior

19th-Century Hand-Coloured Engraving, Gothic Cathedral Interior

This charming 19th-century hand-coloured engraving depicts the interior of a gothic cathedral. It’s rendered particularly well with careful brushwork that brings the scene to life. It’s likely that the colouring was added later by a keen admirer of the architecture on display.

The location is unknown but it’s reminiscent of some of the finer European gothic cathedrals such as Notre-Dame de Paris and Cologne.
