The College of St George has been working in partnership with the City and Guilds of London Art School in establishing an imaginative carving programme which is producing exciting new grotesque sculptures for St George’s Chapel.
The replacement sculptures aim to reproduce the scale and detail of the original mediaeval conception whilst allowing students the opportunity to be inventive in designing new carvings. The new grotesques replace heavily eroded Victorian grotesques which themselves replaced medieval carvings of unknown design.
Canon John White will speak on ‘Translating a Lost Language; New Grotesques at St George’s Chapel.’
John’s talk is part of the programme of The Windsor and Eton Society. Guests are welcome to meetings – there is no charge. Once you attend you might like to become a member. Full details are on the website – https://www.wesoc.org.uk
