All Souls College

All Souls College

Signed, limited edition fine art print of the Examination Schools, Oxford. Printed from a pen and ink drawing onto Marrutt archival paper.

 

All Souls College was founded jointly by Henry Chichele, Archbishop of Canterbury, and King Henry VI, and was built between 1437-1443. Originally its Fellows were obliged to take Holy Orders and were expected to pray for the souls of the faithful departed and those killed in the 100 Years War - hence the name. It has no undergraduates, but each year recent graduate and postgraduate students at Oxford can apply for a fellowship by taking "the hardest exam in the world".

 

This is an unframed print from a run of 150. Available in two sizes: A3 (297x420mm) and A4 (210x297mm).
