Description

From a series of 24 Wren churches and 2 Hawksmoor churches around London, St Martins Ludgate by Janet Brooke is a limited edition linocut print showing St Pauls Cathedral in the background and a London bus stop in the foreground.  The artist uses dominant London icons around this popular church based in the City of London.

There has been a church at this site since 1174 and the church was destroyed in the Great Fire of London and rebuilt by Wren in 1680 and finally completed in 1703

Janet Brooke is a fellow of the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers and she has exhibited internationally. She produces linocut prints of Landmark buildings adored by Londoners. Her series titled ’36 views of Canary Wharf’ is widely acclaimed and a full set of the series is owned by the Museum of London as part of their permanent collection. At Orso Major we have a selection of her prints inspired by the Japanese style of printmaking. The series of City churches comprises 23 Wren Churches and 2 Hawksmoor. The series was started in 2006 with St Brides Fleet Street and the artist added four new pieces to the series in 2014.
