Artist's Description

The Radcliffe

Number of views as of 14th November 2016 = 1380.

The Radcliffe Camera, in the city of Oxford, England.

Designed by James Gibbs in the English Palladian style and built in 1737–1749 to house the Radcliffe Science Library.

John Radcliffe, physician to William III and Mary II of England donated the money to build the library, but didn’t live to see it. Here is an extract from his will:

And will that my executors pay forty thousand pounds in the terme of ten years, by yearly payments of four thousand pounds, the first payment thereof to begin and be made after the decease of my said two sisters for the building a library in Oxford and the purchaseing the houses between St Maries and the scholes in Catstreet where I intend the Library to be built, and when the said Library is built I give one hundred and fifty pounds per annum for ever to the Library Keeper thereof for the time being and one hundred pounds a year per annum for ever for buying books for the same Library.

The shot was taken from the tower of the University Church of St Mary’s, which provides superb views across the city. You can even see the shadow of St Mary’s spire in the foreground!

The green dome of The Sheldonian Theatre is seen left of shot.

Date: 21st March 2009.
