I’ve written a little bit before about my work connected with the mural paintings of Phoebe Anna Traquair, and this week we had a lovely gathering to celebrate the 25th anniversary of our Friends organisation. I took the opportunity to share a few of the stunning images that Diane Holdsworth has taken of the Mortuary Chapel murals with my colleagues and friends. Diane has agreed that the photographs can be released under a CC-BY license and so tomorrow I will start working out how best to make them widely available (Wikimedia Commons is my preferred choice, but there’s some admin to do around clarifying copyright agreements).
Tonight though, I’m going to post a few of them here, because I can’t wait to share them. The photographs are brilliant and show how strange and wonderful these murals are; and what a precarious condition they are now in.
