West End of St George's Chapel, Windsor by Wenceslaus Hollar

Artwork Detail

Beginning around 1660, Hollar etched almost 60

plates for Elias Ashmole’s 1672 history of the Order

of the Garter. Hollar visited Windsor Castle where he

made drawings of St George’s Chapel and the related

monuments. His views of the interior are considered

some of his finest work.

More than 350 years later, in April 2008, a service of

thanksgiving was held in the chapel to commemorate

the life of Sir Edmund Hillary who was made a knight of

the Order of the Garter in 1995.
