On Sunday last week I had the opportunity to go walkabout throught the streets of London. I discover many fascinating places, buildings, sculptures and historic streets and parks on these excursions. One of the places I stumbled across was King’s College London where I found this delightful statue in the gardens.
Something to get us going – I found this on HuffingtonPosts website.
Despite the many centuries of analysis and deliberation by art historians and critics, it appears two Tudor portrait paintings have been harboring creative secrets, until now.
Infrared reflectography and x-radiography analysis has revealed a fully worked up version of The Flagellation of Christ painted beneath the surface of a 1601 portrait of the Lord Treasurer and poet Thomas Sackville, 1st Earl of Dorset.
Very interesting stuff.
