In Hawksmoor's St. George-in-the-East the exagerated keystone over the aisle windows are wrong in relation to the part: when seen close-up they are too big in relation to the opening the span. When seen further back, however, in the context of the whole composition, they are expressly right in size and scale.
Robert Venturi, Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture (1966), p. 31.
