Original artwork description:

The Radcliffe Camera - or 'Rad Cam' or 'The Camera' or 'Radders' - is a reading room for the Bodleian Library situated in central Oxford between Brasenose and All Souls colleges. The Rad Cam was bequeathed to the nation in 1714 by John Radcliffe, prominent Oxford doctor and general smart alec (he attended University College at 13 and became a fellow at Lincoln College at 18), after whom the famous Oxford teaching hospital is also named. In his will JR set aside the princely sum of £40000, payable over ten years, for the construction of Radders, which was started in 1737 and finally inaugurated in 1749. Designed by James Gibbs in English Palladian style this building is the earliest example in England of a circular library. The Radcliffe Camera is not the oldest building in Oxford by a long chalk, but I when I was scouting around for one building to represent 'old' Oxford on a poster The Rad Cam seemed the obvious choice. I always intended to pair this picture of 'old' Oxford with one representing 'new' Oxford, so this painting would make a good pair with the 'Department of Biochemistry.'
