  • About

    Lloyd Rees travelled to Europe several times, first in 1923-24 when he acquired a particular love of France and Italy, and subsequently during the 1950s, 60s and 70s.

    This is the tower of the Cathedral of Notre Dame des Doms. The cathedral was built in 1150 but the virgin on the tower was erected in 1859.
