Christopher Wren

The Ashmolean Museum in Oxford has a wonderful collection of Pre-Raphaelite paintings.  I chose to draw a 1630 bust of Christopher Wren by Edward Pearce because Wren is responsible for some of the most beautiful architecture in England and the world.  He rebuilt 52 churches after the Great Fire including St. Paul's and the south front one of my favorite, Hampton Court.  Plus, he was educated in Oxford.
