Locating John Belcher’s painting of Cambridge’s unbuilt guildhall of 1898

I’m on a search for John Belcher’s magnificent painting and designs for Cambridge’s guildhall – one that was ultimately not built due to spiralling costs.


The above image is from the Internet Archive site – a screenshot of an 1898 edition of Academy architecture & architectural review. I’ve emailed the Royal Academy at Burlington House where the Victorian Web website says the painting resides to see if I can purchase/get a copy of this to bring back home to Cambridge.
