In 1987, commissioned by the Arts Council to draw all 26 medieval cathedrals of England, Dennis Creffield embarked on an epic 10,000-mile journey around England: “No artist has ever before drawn all the English medieval cathedrals – not even Turner. I’ve dreamed of doing so since I was a student.”
As the Aldeburgh Festival returns to Ely Cathedral, this selection of Creffield’s acclaimed charcoal drawings celebrates the splendour of East Anglia’s cathedrals.
