7, Verona, Church of San Zeno Maggiore, measured study of stalls
Inscribed ‘S.ZENONE VERONA/WOOD STALLS, with other notes in pencil, 01/06/91, 230x160mm.
Mackintosh’s drawing is of the upper portion and canopy of the fifteenth century, early Renaissance, wooden choir stalls which display much late gothic feeling. He was particularly impressed by the stalls, describing them as ‘exquisite’ ('A Tour In Italy', p. 124). He used them as a source for those in his 'Design for a Chapter House', entered for the R.I.B.A. Soane Medallion Competition of 1892.
