Treasures of the Hall: The Icon Rom

Editor's Note: As part of a series on the art and architecture of Campion Hall we'll be highlighting an item or room each week, with a short description penned by Hall Archivist Prof. Peter Davidson and Archival Associate Altair Brandon-Salmon.

 

The Icon Room

The colour chosen for the walls of the Icon Room is designed as a background for the collection of icons and gold-backed paintings, which include a 14th century Florentine panel, Greek and Russian works of the 18th and 19th centuries, and one Mexican retablo on tin, dating to the late 19th century.
