A similarly sized and comparable (but not identical) mixed media-drawing of the same subject was exhibited in the Tate Gallery exhibition John Piper, November 1983 - January 1984, no. 157, illustrated in colour p. 67. Vézelay Abbey has a complicated array of imagery in sculpted capitals and portals, and is one of the outstanding masterpieces of Burgundian Romanesque art and architecture.
