Attractive coloured view of Clare College, Cambridge with King's College Chapel in the background. The college was founded in 1338 by the daughter of Gilbert de Clare. However none of its original medieval buildings remain as most of the college was rebuilt after 1638. This picture shows the river front which was designed in 1671, but altered 1715 when the crossed mullion windows were replaced by sashes. The bridge was built between 1639-40 by stone mason Thomas Grumbold and was the first bridge in this classical style in Cambridge.
