The subject was correctly identified as the ‘cloisters’ of Worcester Cathedral by A.J. Finberg (died 1939) and the watercolour and Turner scholar C.F. Bell (died 1966) in undated manuscript notes in copies of Finberg’s 1909 Inventory, where he had described the subject as simply the ‘interior’ of the cathedral.1
