The Mosaics of St Paul's Cathedral
It was the first cathedral planned after the Reformation of the Church in England.
The violent and iconoclastic transition from Roman Catholicism and the debate over the reformed faith which followed were tumultuous and the Cathedral rose at a time of heightened sensitivity to the confluence of art and religion.
David, a biblical ancestor of Christ, is one of several Old Testament characters who appear at window level in the Quire. They are shown alongside historical figures believed to have predicted the birth of Christ - among them King Cyrus of Persia. Richmond designed stained glass windows to accompany his mosaic work, but these were lost in the Second World War.
