St Lawrence, Jewry

Richard Beer (1928-2017)

A rare artists proof etching with aquatint in salmon pink, green and grey of the church of St Lawrence, Jewry from the highly regarded portfolio Ten Wren Churches – featuring Churches designed by Sir Christopher Wren.

St Lawrence Jewry is the official church of the Lord Mayor of London and the City of London Corporation and stands in the Yard of the Guildhall.

It was re-built by Sir Christopher Wren after the Great Fire of 1666, but there has been a church on the site for around 900 years.

After extensive damage in the Second World War, it was again re-built.

Signed, titled and denoted artists proof, this work dates from 1970 and can be found in the Government Art Collection.

It was published by Editions Alecto as an edition of 75 with 15 artist proofs, on Crisbrook waterleaf paper. This series is considered by some to be Beer’s best architectural works.

Measurements: The plate size measures 62 x 42 cm, sheet 77 x 55 approx.

Condition: excellent clean condition.
