This is the Signed original Pen & Ink Wash by Ralph Bruce.

Giovanni Bernini was the most famous architect in Italy - as well as being a famous sculptor - when he was asked to design the square outside the Vatican in Rome.

The Oval, as it actually was, was designed to wow Catholics who had strayed from the church, this is partly why Baroque architecture is much scarcer in the largely Protestant North of Europe.

From the series Carry On Building: A light-hearted look at the fascinating story of architecture. Part ten published in Look and Learn issue 545, 24th June 1972.
