Last Saturday, Jude and I were lucky enough to be invited to the opening of an art exhibition at St George’s Chapel cloisters, inside Windsor Castle. All the paintings on display were by a good friend of ours, Arthur Manton-Lowe. Before he retired and took up painting, Arthur used to be a ‘bobby on the beat’ in Eton and Windsor and so has good ‘connections’ with the Castle.
Our viewing was preceded by the daily Evensong service in the Chapel and I have to say that it was a wonderful experience. If you ever find yourself in or near Windsor at 5pm, you should attend the (free) service. The internal architecture has to be seen to be believed and the choristers are simply amazing.
Arthur’s ‘Pilgrimage’ exhibition is open, from 10am – 4pm, until Thursday 6th October.
Unfortunately, photography was not allowed inside the chapel, though I did sneak a quick photo of Arthur in the Cloisters. So the later photographs below, of him at work and some of his paintings, were all taken in our chalet.
