Caption
Jonah, Abraham and Isaac, Joel. Detail of Victorian painted wood ceiling of the nave (1858). The ceiling was painted by two gifted amateurs, Henry Styleman le Strange and his friend Thomas Gambier Parry. They painted the ceiling in situ, on their backs on scaffolding in poor light, like Michelangelo.
