St Olave Old Jewry by Janet Brooke sits on Old Jewry and Ironmonger Lane in the City of London

During the excavations in the 1980s, foundations of buildings dating back to the 9th and 11th centuries were found on this site. The church was rebuilt by Wren after the Great Fire. The rebuilding took place between 1671-1679 and used the existing mediaval structure as well as rubble from the still derelict St Paul’s Cathedral nearby.

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 when completed will comprise 34 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.
