Read The London Craig blog> Craig’s review of Guildhall Art Gallery  I’ve been here before. Check out my London blog for a review, with photos

When Visscher's made an engraving of the city skyline in 1616, he also created one of the most iconic images of medieval London.

His city is dominated by church steeples and spires, and is one of the few visual records we have of London before it was destroyed in the Great Fire of 1666.

To mark the 400th anniversary of Visscher's image (and the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London), it will be displayed alongside a new work by Robin Reynolds which depicts the same view, but as it looks today.
