Once I was a clever boy learning the arts of Oxford... is a quotation from the verses written by Bishop Richard Fleming (c.1385-1431) for his tomb in Lincoln Cathedral. Fleming, the founder of Lincoln College in Oxford, is the subject of my research for a D. Phil., and, like me, a son of the West Riding. I have remarked in the past that I have a deeply meaningful on-going relationship with a dead fifteenth century bishop... it was Fleming who, in effect, enabled me to come to Oxford and to learn its arts, and for that I am immensely grateful.

More about the Raphael Cartoons

In addition to the link I posted yesterday I see that The Smithsonian Magazine has an article about the Raphael Cartoons project which has additional information and can be seen at New Online Tool Reveals Raphael's Sistine Chapel Cartoons in Stunning Detail

The Cartoons are clearly something to go and see in person as well as online - I have not managed to see them yet myself on various visits to the V&A - once we can travel again and visit museums and galleries.
