Painting of Glastonbury Abbey

Description
Glastonbury Abbey was once the wealthiest monastic house in England. When it was dissolved in 1539 its buildings were plundered and quickly became ruinous. George Arnald presents the abbey as a romanticised symbol of the past. He has moved the AbbotĂȘs Kitchen and Glastonbury Tor to heighten the visual effect.
