    About this item

    A wonderfully atmospheric painting depicting the light flooded and serene interior of a Gothic cathedral. Depicted is the 13th Century St Paul's Cathedral in Munster, Westphalia. The work is unsigned, but is undoubtedly a work by Henry Schafer (1833-1916), the ultimate painter of cathedral interiors of the Victorian era. It dates from circa 1860.

    Schafer studied at the l’Ecole National de Beaux-Arts, Paris, and painted town and city scenes and cathedral interiors in Belgium, Germany, and France.He lived for part of his life in Islington, London, which is why he is often listed as Henry Schafer. Th paintings of Henri Schafer are often misattributed to the British artist Henry Thomas Schafer and their biographical details are occasionally merged, most notably in the Benezit dictionary of artists. The catalogues of auction houses regularly confuse the two artists. Distinct biographical sketches may be found in Christopher Wood's Dictionary of Victorian Painters.

    Measured without the frame, the canvas size is 46 x 54 cm
