Burne-Jones cathedral window in Oxford

Last Saturday, as we some family over, we went to Oxford and visited Christ Church college.

One of the stained glass windows in the cathedral of the college has been designed by Edward Burne-Jones one of the Pre-Raphaelite painters: the Saint Catherine window. According to the leaflet provided, "the face of the central figure, St. Catherine of Alexandria, is a picture of Edith Liddell."

We were in Tunbridge Wells last week, popped into Christ Church (good cafe!) and I was delighted to find three Burne Jones windows in the modern church autitorium (saved by the church when it was rebuilt) along with two other attractive modern windows each side.

It's worth a look in if you are ever there and Tunbridge Wells would make a great place to paint too!
