This talk by Dr Ellie Pridgeon, a Tutor in History of Art for the University of Oxford Department of Continuing Education and a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London, will focus on wall paintings in Oxfordshire churches from the medieval period to the 19th Century. After looking at the painted interiors at South Newington, Chalgrove and Black Bourton to understand the various functions of medieval murals and their subsequent eradication at the Reformation, the focus will shift to the Victorians – including the Pre-Raphaelites in Oxford – and their efforts to create their own sense of ‘the medieval’.
