Royal Patron Announced by Chichester Cathedral...

The Dean & Chapter of Chichester Cathedral are delighted to announce that His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales has agreed to become the Patron of an Appeal to stabilise and restore the magnificent Tudor Panel Paintings by local artist, Lambert Barnard in the Cathedral.

These pictures, painted in the 16th Century on wooden panels, represent a magnificent example of Renaissance art, and are of national importance.  They contain images of Kings and Queens, and of King Henry VIII conferring Royal protection on Chichester Cathedral.  Believed to be the largest surviving paintings of their kind, they are on display in the Transepts of the Cathedral.

The Dean of Chichester, The Very Reverend Nicholas Frayling, announcing the Royal Patronage said:

"This is a wonderful encouragement to all of us who are working to save these important works of art for the nation.  The Prince's Patronage is an indication of their significance, and will be a great help as we seek funding for this ambitious project."
