The Church of St Paul at Covent Garden

The Church of St Paul at Covent Garden


St Paul’s Covent Garden, London 1631

Inigo Jones, 1573—1652


The handsomest barn in England…


Drawn showing the original design, with two doors, now blocked up, and the steps leading up to what Hawksmoor called “The Temple at Covent Garden”.


“When the Earl of Bedford sent for Inigo, he told him he wanted a chapel for the parishioners of Covent-garden, but added, he wou'd not go to any considerable expence; in short, said he, I wou'd not have it much better than a barn.—well! then, replied Jones, you shall have the handsomest barn in England.” Horace Walpole


Original drawing in Watercolour and Ink on Saunders Waterford Watercolour Paper 100% Cotton, 300gsm — 570mm x 850mm.
