In 1980's, after I had moved from Cambridge, I continued to clean pictures for several colleges including Corpus Christi. This amazing picture was one of those that I remember so well from all those years ago. Repost @nicholascullinan
・・・
Is this Christopher Marlowe? There have been arguments both for and against that attribution since this painting was found in 1952 among rubble in the Master’s Lodge of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, where Marlowe studied from 1580-87 (the portrait is dated to 1585, when he would have been about 21). Against that attribution is the remarkable velvet doublet, which some have argued would have been far too ostentatious for this to credibly be Marlowe, as a humble shoemaker’s son. The Latin inscription ‘Quod me nutrit me destruit’ (That which nourishes me, destroys me) is instead used to support the attribution as befitting for such a self-destructive character. Fun fact - that same Latin inscription is also tattooed on Angelina Jolie. Regrettably, I do not know her views on this debate. #christophermarlowe #portrait #doublet #corpuschristi #cambridge #quodmenutritmedestruit #latin #angelinajolie

Everett Fine Art Ltd is at Exeter Cathedral.

Reminded of an old frame restoration we did while at a wonderful concert at #exetercathedral last week. Inspired by @marhamchurchantiques of Exeter to post. Elaborately carved and gilded Italian frame.. A stunner🎆✨.

Exeter Cathedral was founded in 1050. The construction of a Cathedral on the present site began in 1114. The two towers and the lower part of the Nave walls of this Norman (Romanesque) building survive in the present Cathedral. A major rebuild, in Decorated Gothic style, was carried out under six bishops between c.1270 and c.1350.

Finishing touches today to the rehang of Lady Elizabeth by Sir Godfrey Kneller painted 1702. They were allegedly lovers, with 5 further portraits, some more intimate, by Kneller of her.
.
.
Lady Elizabeth Cromwell lived at Kingsweston, Bristol (by John Vanbrugh 1712). She married Edward Southall and refused to take his name. His political life took him to London so she decided to manage the family sardine business located in Ireland and Portugal. She died in childbirth to her forth child aged 35.

Colonel Challoner's was not for partying! 🎉😕 Perhaps neglect by generations after might reflect that! Much to bring him back to life.

I love pictures that arrive in the studio that untouched and tell a story. Here is Colonel Challoner's villa in Naples.. Stylish and set for delights and extravagant parties .. However (next post), things are never quite as they seem...
