St. Pauls Cathedral 🙂

The Raising of Lazarus
.
Sebastiano del Piombo incorporating designs by Michelangelo
.
.
National Gallery description;
.
At the request of Martha & Mary, Jesus visited the grave of their brother Lazarus & raised him from the dead (John 11:1–44). Sebastiano shows Christ standing with one hand raised to invoke the power of God & the other pointing to Lazarus, who is seated on the edge of his stone tomb.
.
Christ speaks the life-giving words, ‘Lazarus come forth’. A kneeling man helps Lazarus remove the shroud and bindings in which he had been buried. Mary kneels at Christ’s feet in awe while Martha raises her hands & turns her head away, unable to look. Saint Peter at bottom left falls to his knees while other disciples turn to one another in amazement.
.
The painting was commissioned for Narbonne Cathedral in southern France by Cardinal Giulio de' Medici, who had also commissioned Raphael’s Transfiguration for the same cathedral. Michelangelo provided drawings for some of the main figures in this complex composition as he was keen to help Sebastiano outperform Raphael, their artistic rival.

I had the pleasure of visiting the National Gallery London, this week. I will post some of my favourites, the majority are from the 1500's.
.
Here we have: The Madonna and Child with Saints
.
By Bronzino
.
.
National Gallery description;
.
▪️ Elderly Saint Elizabeth looks down over the Virgin Mary’s shoulder at her son Saint John the Baptist. The Christ Child removes a garland of flowers from his head, symbolising innocence or childish pleasure. He grasps the reed cross held by the infant Saint John, who wears his camel-skin cloak & carries a baptismal bowl.
.
The reed cross foreshadows the Crucifixion, & by grasping it Christ accepts his destiny to die for humanity. The wild strawberries offered by Saint John may refer to Christ’s fruitful and righteous life, & their colour may also be a reminder of the blood spilled during the events leading up to his death.
.
The picture was painted around 1540, perhaps for an acquaintance of Bronzino’s at the court of Duke Cosimo I de' Medici in Florence. It is close in style to the frescoes Bronzino painted in the Chapel of Eleonora of Toledo (the Duke’s wife) in the Palazzo Vecchio in around 1541–2.

Rye Windmill: The Grade 2 listed mill was reconstructed in 1932 where it served as a bakery until 1976. It then served as a pottery until in 1984 when it first became a B&B which is still serves as today, just under different ownership. - Photo Taken By Kay

Chipping Campden built its wealth through the wool trade in the 13th century, and many buildings associated with this commodity are still present in the town today.
The Woolstaplers Hall served for hundreds of years as the wool exchange in the town.
Built in 1340, its hall attracted thousands of merchants from around the world, where traders would come to buy the precious Cotswolds fleeces.
The building is listed as Grade I due to its exceptional historical importance

St. Michael and All Angels Churchyard and Brontë Parsonage, Haworth, Yorkshire
This building is now the Brontë Parsonage Museum. It was the family home of Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë and their brother, Branwell. The sisters spent most of their lives here. Their father, Patrick, became the parson of the parish church in 1820.

Quite the turnout tonight for one of the best events in the #Bristol calendar - the annual St Nick’s Festive Night Market! 🎄This market is allllllll about the street food and I am suitably stuffed after feasting on incredible katsu noodles and Korean fried cauliflower from @wokyko and a big old batch of churros, all washed down with my first mulled wine of the year 🍷😋
