Lot Essay

Pugin contributed drawings to Ackermann's The History of Westminster Abbey, 1812. One engraving from his drawings depicts the Henry VII chapel, but from slightly further south. The drawing for that print must also have been executed earlier than the present work as the restorations by James Wyatt (1746-1813) are less advanced. This drawing shows the building now removed from Poets' Corner, and the Chapter House before Sir George Gilbert Scott's 1866-1872 restoration.
