Carter’s drawing of the Cathedral west front (north end)

John Carter was a leading architectural draftsman of his day. He made the original drawings from which these engravings were prepared in 1792. They are a most important record of the medieval sculptures before they suffered much damage. The group of seated kings shown here with their rather static poses was added to the west front in the late 14th century.
