Lanercost Priory, near Naworth, 1844. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Lanercost Priory, near Naworth, 1844. Creator: Unknown

Lanercost Priory, near Naworth, 1844. The ruins of the monastic buildings are very extensive, and are situated in a secluded vale, watered by the Irthing, surrounded by well-wooded heights, and very near to Naworth [in Cumbria]. The arch of the gate-house remains; the church is cruciform; it consists of a nave, with only one aisle (the north), and a transept; and a choir, with a low embattled square tower at the intersection of the cross: the western doorway is very fine. Among the other remains, are the Prior's Lodgings and the Hospitium, the Cloisters and Refectory, or great dining-hall. The church, except the western front, is in the transition style from the Norman to the early English. The Priory was founded in the middle of the twelfth century, and the monks of Lanercost are of some celebrity'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol I

The movement later became the Society for Travelling Art Exhibitions. Perov visited Germany and Paris, and was a professor at Moscow School of Arts, Sculpture and Architecture. Painting in the collection of The State Russian Museum, St Petersburg, Russia. From "The Russian State Museum". [State Art Publishers, Moscow and Leningrad, 1939]
