The Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Exeter (RAMM) has announced that it has acquired a watercolour by Thomas Girtin of the Interior of Exeter Cathedral. The work dates to 1797 and was exhibited at the Royal Academy in the following year.

The work was in fact sold at Christie's in July of this year where it realised £15,000 (hammer price). The acquisition was made possible with money received from the Art Fund, The RAMM Friends and the Kent Kingdon Trust
