Additional Information about the Print

In 1913 Dickins published a large landscape format etching of Queen’s College, showing the whole width of the college along the High Street to either side of the central entrance.

Stylistically this large vertical close-up of the entrance the Queen's College belongs to the same period or earlier. The drawing of Queen’s College included in Walcot’s 1912 exhibition at the Fine Art Society 'Watercolours of Ancient Rome, London & Oxford' may relate to this etching, rather than the landscape format one published by Dickins.

Founded in the 14th century, the frontage of the college was designed by Nicholas Hawksmoor as part of the 18th century remodelling and extension.
