  • Medieval Wall Paintingsby Roger Rosewell

    Osprey Publishing 2014; US$ 7.95

    What medieval wall paintings remain in English churches tend to be shadows of their former selves ? rare fragments of art that have survived not only the Reformation, but successive waves of iconoclastic zeal and unsympathetic restoration.
