The corner of King Henry VII\'s Chapel can be seen on the opposing side of the watercolour, while in the distance a row of eighteenth century town houses pale into insignificance.

    Crowther specialized in architectural and topographical subjects and has successfully captured the complexity of construction and the intricacy of architectural detail.
