The onslaught of Pugin masterpieces continues! See here if you missed the first entry.
Another sample of Pugin's domestic work: the King's Room at Scarisbrick Hall. It was one of three reception rooms used to showcase the family's collection of church woodworkings imported from the Continent. Above the door are paintings of King Henry VIII, his wives, and progeny.
An illustration for the front page of Pugin's "Gothic Furniture", a set of illustrations on the Gothic revival applied to household items.
A jewelry set Pugin fashioned for one of his wives, I believe. Includes necklaces, earrings, brooches, and bracelets.
There are already plenty of pictures online of Pugin's chasubles (priestly vestments). I decided to instead post one of the dalmatics he designed. These are the vestments worn by a deacon in solemn high Mass.
The Peers' Lobby, an antechamber in Parliament where the lords assemble before entering the House of Lords.
An illustration of the House of Commons chamber as designed by Pugin (subsequently destroyed by bombing during World War II). Certainly looks a lot richer than the current version.
A photograph of how the House of Commons looked before the war.
Portrait of the Most Rev. Robert Willson, first Bishop of Hobart, Australia, and one of Pugin's greatest supporters. He's seen here in Pugin's vestments.
An episcopal ring worn by Bishop Willson in the previous portrait.
An altar for a private chapel at Alton Towers. Lord and Lady Shrewsbury, more of Pugin's patrons, are portrayed at either side of the crucifix in medieval dress.
The chapel of the Blessed Sacrament at the church of Saint Giles, Cheadle.
