NOTES: This drawing (numbered Plate 60) is one of a series of topographical thesis studies made by Cowlishaw between 1928 and 1930 while he was a member of the Imperial War Graves Commission. The series was entitled 'French Civic Architecture 1500-1802. A study of some of the notable buildings in Northern France erected during the early part of the 16th century to the beginning of the 19th century.'
NOTES: This drawing is by an unidentified draughtsman after an engraved plate in Milner's History and survey of the antiquities of Winchester (Winchester, 1798), vol. I, p. 431. Also known as Winchester Palace, Wren's proposed royal palace for Charles II stood on a site adjacent to Winchester Castle and was in part modelled after the Palace of Versailles. Charles died in 1685 before the project's completion and the building was later converted into an army barracks.
