Sir Frank Brangwyn RA, one of the leading 20th century artists, came to Christ’s Hospital School in 1913 to design and paint 16 wall murals depicting incidents in the history of the Christian church. Due to World War One they took 10 years to complete. Brangwyn gave the school 7 cartoons, or preparatory designs for the murals which carry signs of their use. For the first time ever some of the cartoons will be on display in Horsham Museum & Art Gallery along with other Brangwyn items including two sketches for an abandoned Houses of Parliament decorative scheme proposed after World War One. They will then return to Christ’s Hospital and feature in a larger exhibition on the chapel paintings.
This event runs from 9th Feb 2019 to 23rd Mar 2019
