Kirkstall Abbey, Refectory
1823 Engraving of the Refectory at Kirkstall Abbey depicted in the Romantic style by George Cuitt. Cuitt was born in Richmond in 1779. His father George Cuit was a landscape painter. Cuitt junior added an extra 'T' to his surname to distinguish himself from his father. Influenced by the Italian engraver G.B. Piranesi (1720-1778), Cuitt turned to etchings and produced numerous views of castles, abbeys, town houses and cottages. Cuitt died in 1854 and is buried in Masham. His studies of Kirkstall Abbey were produced in 1823 as a collection called Yorkshire Abbeys. A volume of collected works called Wanderings and Pencillings amongst the ruins of Olden Times with 72 etched plates was published in 1848.
