Claes Jansz. Visscher's 1616 engraving is one of the most iconic images of medieval London; four hundred years on, artist Robin Reynolds has recreated the 6.6ft panorama to depict today’s metropolis. Reynolds' version of modern London, arranged to fit the Visscher landscape, is displayed alongside Visscher’s original print. Both works illustrate the Thames streaming through the centre of the city; a London icon serving the metropolises for many years. The artworks showcase the difference between how the river was used then and now – most notably the volume of boats and the addition of many bridges.
