Fine art photography of the Wren Library, Trinity College Cambridge presented as part of the large Illuminating Cambridge Libraries series. Designed by architect Sir Christopher Wren and completed in 1695, the Wren Library is one of the great masterpieces of Cambridge. Tall windows flank both sides of the long room, making it a light and airy space. The 5m tall window at the end (see ‘Window‘) depicts Isaac Newton being presented to King George III with Francis Bacon recording. The bookcases are adorned with wood carvings by Grinling Gribbons (see ‘E‘) and marble busts. Of particular interest are first editions of Isaac Newton’s Optics and Principia that Newton himself hand-annotated (see ‘Newton’s books‘ for the shelf, or ‘Optics and Principia‘ for the detail). The library is regularly open to visitors and for special events.
This photographic collection of the Wren Library at Trinity College Cambridge was photographed in 2017 and contains 136 images, a small selection of which are shown below and available as giclee prints in many sizes.
