Marlow’s St Paul’s Capriccio

William Marlow (1740-1813), Capriccio: St Paul’s and a Venetian Canal
c. 1795; oil on canvas, 60 x 41 in.; London, Tate Gallery

The view of St Paul’s Cathedral as if it had been completed according to the original plans of Wren and with Hawksmoor’s baptistry (which I posted yesterday) reminded me of this capriccio by William Marlow. And then this in turn recalled my 2005 post If London Were Like Venice.

what a beautiful fantasy!and in this dream, I’m also guessing St Paul’s would be a Catholic Church, as they are in Venice.
