Relhan Collection : 83 Cambridge King’s College. W front of chapel, with the tower of St Mary’s church

Relhan, Richard, 1782-1844

Relhan Collection

<p style='text-align: justify;'><p>This view was little changed in 2019. As Benton noted, it shows the tower of Great St Mary’s to left. This medieval church was totally rebuilt 1478–c.1536, sharing craftsmen with King’s College Chapel. It was and remains the University Church. The drawing, like (<b>82)</b> and (<b>91</b>), was customised in Relhan’s style but depicts a popular site that was often published as an engraving (eg Britton’s <i>Architectural Antiquities of Britain, 1830)</i>. Detail, regardless of a law of copyright, was often copied and, although Relhan’s drawings are early (<b>91</b> is dated 1818) they are unlikely to be totally original.</p></p>
