More de Maistre

You will recall from an earlier posting that we hold several works of art by the australian painter Roy de Maistre. Yesterday arrived another, a large crucifixion from Hayes parish in west London, which they are donating to the Cathedral on permanent loan. The parish of Hayes has a considerable artisitic heritage, boasting a large altar-piece by Pietro Annigoni (now, I wouldn't mind having that on loan!).

The de Maistre is large - almost six feet high - and we will have an interesting time working out where to hang it. It is, however, good that we now have a sizeable collection of this artist's work.

How did Jesus become so buff? Perhaps I should go into carpentry for a bit?

That is a hideous painting.
