St Martin-in-the-Fields interior model

StMartinInterior
 

This original model shows various alternative decorative schemes for the exterior and interior. Gibbs combined a dramatic temple portico, which was then entirely new to English church architecture, with a spire. He published his design in 1728 and St Martin’s was imitated as far afield as Ireland, America and India.
