A comment arrived recently asking about Roy de Maistre, and so for Maundy Thursday I thought it opportune to show the works of his owned by the Cathedral. In the Long Corridor hang his Stations of the Cross - you can see them on the right in their original 1950s frames, which makes them very difficult to photograph!
Roy de Maistre was born in 1894 in New South Wales, Australia. as an artist, he began experimenting with colour, and especially the ways that colour relates to musical harmony. For de Maistre, the way that colours combined in a painting was akin to the combination of notes in music.
