St Peter’s College, Oxford (1982)
33 x 46 cm
A lithograph of St Peter’s, from a line and wash painting by Paul Hogarth. Hogarth’s view shows Linton Quad, with the chapel on the right; the chapel was built in 1874 and incorporated some of the stone of an earlier church on the site. Dons and undergraduates pace across the quad, and birds fly over the Latter Building and past the city’s dreaming spires.
Hogarth’s line and wash painting was reproduced as a lithograph in 1982, to be published in the “Oxford Almanack”. The Oxford Almanack was an annual almanac published by the Oxford University Press for the University of Oxford from 1674 through 2019 (when printing sadly ceased due to “dwindling interest”). The almanac traditionally included engravings or lithographs of the University and information about the upcoming year. Other almanac artists have included James Basire, Michael Burghers, J. M. W. Turner, and John Piper.
Condition: very good.
