R. Jamess seminal publication The Frescoes in the Chapel at Eton Collegepublished over 100 years ago The paintings which adorn the lower walls of the chapel at Eton College are arguably the most important surviving late-medieval murals in Northern Europe. Documented as having been painted between 1479 and 1487, they originally comprised some thirty-two scenes ranged in two registers on the chapels north and south walls, recounting the miracles of the Virgin.

Concealed for years with whitewash and panelling, it was not until the 1920s that the paintings were finally uncovered and their significance appreciated fully. This stunningly illustrated publication brings together the considerable body of recent research into these internationally important wall paintings, giving a comprehensive description and an account of their creation and patronage. It also includes a fascinating discussion on the Head Masters Chambers wall painting dated to around 1520 and discovered in 2005.
