Birdseye View of the Statue of Edward II in his monument in Gloucester Cathedral
Medium: Ink wash on paper
Drawing of a stone monument to Edward III. This shows his recumbent effigy only, although in the whole, it is placed on a canopied tomb chest of Purbeck Marble. Nikolaus Pevsner comments 'The effigy is alabaster, the earliest important English example, no doubt in emulation of the white marble of French royal effigies of the late C13- early C14. It is London work of the highest quality, with a fine bearded head, calm and typically Plantagenet, flanked by angels. The king holds the royal orb and sceptre, the former appearing here for the first time on an English royal tomb'.
