Original frame by the Medici Society, this is a very rare piece of religious art. A hand made Lithograph on board of his painting as a young man 'The Configuration'
The paintings in the church are the work of David O'Connell (1898-1976), an artist who instituted the Catenians in Chichester and was their President. He served in the trenches in World War I and trained as a commercial artist, but his specialism was religious painting. He was Artistic Advisor to St Richard's.
As well as designing the font and other items, David provided St Richard's with the altar painting, the archangels that flank the tabernacle and the Stations of the Cross.
The paintings of Our Lady of Walsingham and The Transfiguration, which hang in the West Gallery, are prints. The print of The Transfiguration was discovered unexpectedly in the Presbytery and that of Our Lady of Walsingham was gifted to the church by a lady in Ireland. The originals of these two paintings are in the Church of Saints John Fisher and Thomas More in Eltham.
