Lithograph, rare, fine proof impression, printed area 230 x 300mm (9 x 11¾"). The church of St Mary, Greenwich, London (then Kent), built in 1823-4 and destroyed in 1935. Designed by the architect George Basevi (1794-1845), who attended Dr Charles Burney's school in Greenwich before becoming a pupil of John Soane, the church with its impressive portico of Greek Ionic columns was similar to Basevi's earlier church of St Thomas, Stockport. The church stood at the St Mary's Gate entrance to Greenwich park. It is viewed here from Hawksmoor's St Alphege church, to the north-west. Greenwich Park is in the background, with the Royal Observatory visible in the distance. The University of Greenwich's Stockwell Street building now stands between the church of St Alphege and the site of the church of St Mary.
