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.

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
