History & Heritage

Watercolours by Alexander Creswell

The Ely Series Brochure

Ely Cathedral is a glorious building which has been represented in art many times over the centuries. Now, for the first time, we have an opportunity to celebrate the artistic angle for the benefit of the Cathedral. Alexander Creswell's work is displayed in many public and private collections.

He has an international reputation as Britain's finest contemporary watercolour painter and has undertaken commissions for HM The Queen and many others. He has paintings in The Frick Museum & The Forbes Collection, New York and has held many exhibitions in London, New York, Hong Kong, Dubai and elsewhere. In 2008 he was awarded the Arthur Ross Award for Excellence in the Classical Tradition.

The Ely Series Brochure

"Ely Cathedral is a fabulous subject, presenting in one glance almost every challenge that a painter can encounter; not just the light, the perspective, colour & scale, but its soaring majesty and awe-inspiring spirit. I am delighted that my work will go towards supporting the Cathedral so that its wonders may be experienced by future generations for years to come." Alexander Creswell
