The College Chapel, The Queen’s College

While I have received permission to photograph the stained glass windows within the chapel, I am yet to receive permission to use them!  Notwithstanding, for this purpose I feel happy posting the edited image.

This window, to the right of the East Window illustrates an event in the life of Christ: The Ascension.  In keeping with all of the chapel’s medieval glass, the colours are bold with the people overshadowed by the swirling clouds and angels.  The lunette above the main scene (precluded from this image) depicts St Luke, The Last Supper and St John.  Located within the circular apse, the window is gently bowed, resulting in the seemingly curved horizontal tie bars within the image.

In addition to the usual corrective work, it seemed appropriate to remove the many repaired breaks within the window.  The before and after comparison is vivid:
