Another Take

Dark Prison After Piranesi, c.1790 by Joseph Mallord William Turner, The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Turner is the most famous and prolific British painter of the 19th Century. His watercolors and oils record the buildings an events of his world. He also traveled throughout Europe and the British isles where he recorded what he saw.

The recent couple of architectural pieces you've featured remind me of the photographic work of Frederick Evans, like this one.

Lovely pictures - I'm nuts about cathedral architecture - thanks for the link.
