"Remember ll" £195
The signature of W Kempton is found on one of the beams up in the Octagon. The Kemptons were a local family who set up greengrocers in Ely in the 1500's and were shopkeepers in Ely for many years. The family names are also on panels from 1916 and there was a choirboy in the choir school. It is probably the local connection between the family and the Cathedral that resulted in the name on the wall. Oil and cold wax painting on cradled panel, set in a painted tray frame, overall size 18x23cm. Ref courtesy of Mark Bradford, Guide, Ely Cathedral. This painting will be exhibited as part of the OuseLife exhibition "After the Fall" in Ely Cathedral from 27th April to 29th May 2022, when it will be available for sale.
