Photographer's Note

Vaulting of the Chapel in Greenwich Hospital (Old Royal Naval College).

he Chapel of St Peter and St Paul was the last major element in the Hospital’s construction and was completed to Thomas Ripley’s design in 1752. It had a plainer interior than the present one (like the Painted Hall before it was painted) and was typical of English Baroque in relying for its effect on space and proportion rather than embellishment. There was a flat, coffered ceiling, an apse at the east end and galleries – though less ornate than the present ones.
