Henry the Seventh's Chapel, as seen from the West End
Engraver: Stadler, J.C.
View of Henry VII's Chapel from the west end. Henry VII is the fourth great Royal patron of the Abbey. He started a new chapel in 1503, intending it for his murdered uncle Henry VI. This costly venture was scaled down; however the finished chapel was still impressive with its fine carvings, delicate fan-vaulted ceiling and magnificent monument erected over Henry VII's tomb. Tudor and Stuart descendents were buried in the Chapel.
