Magdalen Church

WAG 2488


Rimmer was an artist and architectural historian - he published many books examining historic buildings, illustrating them himself. He published 'Pleasant Spots Around Oxford' in 1878, for which this is a prepatory sketch. The published engravings were done by Percy Roberts after Rimmer's sketches. Magdalen College is part of Oxford University. It was founded in 1458. The chapel is one of its grandest and most recognisable buildings.
