Description

This is a large presentation of an unidentified church with gothic windows and rounded archways. The bulidng also contains a large tower that serves as a main entrance to the building. Medieval, gothic, window slits take up most of the building space, save for the larger, arched windows on the base of the building and the main window, which appears to be filled with stained glass. The drawing is in color, and depicts the church as off-white/gray alongside more modern-looking red, brick buildings. A finely trimmed lawn with small shrubbery lines the church.
