Chartres Cathedral by David Bomberg


Bomberg worked in charcoal when visiting Spain, both in Toledo in 1929 and Ronda in 1934-5 where he made a series of dramatic studies of the Tajo gorge. The stark and powerful effects of large scale charcoal drawings also proved suitable for dramatic architectural subjects such as his series of drawings of the wartime destruction of London's buildings. This study of Chartres Cathedral draws on the same stark and powerful dynamics as the London charcoals and was executed shortly after the war.
