Wraxall Church, font
Artist: Grimm, Samuel Hieronymus
Medium: Ink wash on paper
The church was built in the Gothic Perpendicular style although it has some earlier parts such as the Norman south doorway. The font is large, octagonal and in the Perpendicular style. The sides are decorated with two blank arches.
The Gothic style (12th-16th centuries) is characterised by strong vertical lines, high vaulted ceilings, pointed window and door openings and buttressed walls, and falls between the Romanesque and Renaissance periods. Gothic Perpendicular (1375-1540) is further marked by the use of horizontal and perpendicular lines.
