One of my very helpful readers solved my WHO CAN SOLVE THE QUESTION about the Britannia sculpture by Flaxman which I have posted off and on for two years. He worked hard and consulted with friends and enjoyed the exploration to the end. I really enjoyed it. In return, he sent me two SOLVE THE IDENTIFICATIONS. One I knew right off the bat because it was something very close to my wife’s family. But the second SOLVE THE QUESTION drew a blank. It didn’t even look familiar. This early morning, my new friend in Australia sent me the answer: ST JAMES’S SPANISH PLACE CATHOLIC CHURCH behind the Wallace Collection on Manchester Square. I am at the Wallace Collection at least twice a year, but the church has never been part of my discoveries or introductions. SO, I decided that perhaps many of my readers might like to check it out for themselves as I will do when I am in London for my winter visit. It is a late 19th century church on a very much older style, and it is decorated as all the Victorians liked to over-the-top everything, but still, it is a magnificent setting. Join me; let’s check it out and have some fun with a new discovery.
THIS IS THE PHOTOGRAPH MY FRIEND SENT TO ME TO IDENTIFY. IT DREW A BLANK IN MY HEAD.
HERE IS WHAT I HAVE FOUND SINCE:
