An original 1903 graphite drawing, Mary Temple Moore Colosseum.
This faint graphite drawing is laid down on backing paper. Adhered to the back is a note from Charles Deely gifting the drawing to Mrs A.L. Pryce in 1924. Accompanying the drawing is a label suggesting that the drawing was by 17-year-old Mary Temple Moore, of Hamstead, and was exhibited at the Royal Drawing Society Exhibition in 1903. Mary was married to Temple Lushington Moore, the renowned Victorian architect who died in Hampstead in 1920. Mary designed the reredos at All Saints Church, Basingstoke, the building itself designed by Temple Moore. She also designed windows at St Johns Church,Hampstead, where her memorial can be found at the foot of the chancel steps and where her husband was buried.
There are a couple of marks on the paper as shown.
