This painting shows the west view of the interior of Rotherham Parish Church. Another of Cowen’s paintings, 'Chapel in the Oak', is on display at Clifton Park Museum, and has a very similar composition where the viewers’ eye is drawn through the picture to the light at the centre of the painting. From humble beginnings Cowen became a drawing master in Sheffield. Here he attracted the attention of Charles William Wentworth, 3rd Earl Fitzwilliam.
