Wells Cathedral Chapter House

Chapter House 20x30cm £150

A five colour linocut print of the Chapter House at Wells Cathedral. The Chapter House is one of my favourite parts of the Cathedral. It is an eight sided room, with seating all around the edges, apart from the entrance. The fan-vaulted ceiling is supported by a single central column. The Chapter House was a meeting room. I always feel tempted to follow Gerard Hoffnung and recommend that visitors should try the famous echo in the Chapter House. The acoustics are amazing, but I'd imagine they aren't ideal for meetings.
