In this large canvas Frank Salisbury has depicted a particularly significant moment in the long and rich history of Westminster hall. The king, Richard II, together with his master carpenter, Hugh Herland, inspect the work of construction on the roof of Westminster Hall in 1397. The hammerbeam roof, which spanned the entire width and length of Westminster Hall without the need for supporting columns, was a work of technical brilliance.
