About the Author

Carola Hicks, an acclaimed art historian, and witty, perceptive writer, died in 2010 just as she was finishing this book. Born in Sussex, Carola studied archaeology at Edinburgh University, and was an actress, journalist and House of Commons Researcher, before taking up an academic career. For several years she was curator of the Stained Glass Museum at Ely Cathedral, and then became a Fellow and Director of Studies in art history at Newnham College, Cambridge. Her books include Animals in Early Medieval Art, Improper Pursuits- The Scandalous Life of Lady Di Beauclerk, and two fine 'biographies' of works of art- The Bayeux Tapestry- The Life Story of a Masterpiece and Girl in a Green Gown- The History and Mystery of the Arnolfini Portrait.

Reviews

"Fascinating... This is a splendid piece of art history. Carola Hicks writes beautifully" * Sunday Telegraph * "By concentrating her gaze upon one of the outstanding buildings of England, Carola Hicks provides a history of an entire culture" -- Peter Ackroyd * The Times * "A jewel of a book" * Independent * "One of the great pleasures of this book is the skill with which it interweaves the political narratives of the 15th and 16th centuries with a detailed history of the art form. The windows become a dazzling kaleidoscope in which the stories of the Tudor line and the English Reformation gradually take shape" * Daily Telegraph *
