Bruce Hurn Art Event 2010
On 26 June 2010, a special event dedicated to Bruce Hurn, a former art teacher, was held in the chapel at King Edward's School. The event marked the return of his painting 'The Crucifixion' to the chapel after lengthy restoration work. Over 80 Old Edwardians and guests came back to King Edward's for the day which started with tours of the School. There was then a chance to see some of the restoration photos as well as the altarpeice itself before a special dedication service led by the school chaplain, Rev Duncan Raynor. Duncan spoke about the history of the chapel and its place at the heart of the school. There were then some speeches of thanks from John Claughton, Chris Eckersley and Bruce Hurn himself. After the service everyone headed for the Chief Master's garden for a well-earned cream tea before heading home full of memories and sandwiches.
You can view the photos from the day here.
Bruce Hurn taught art at King Edward's for almost 30 years between 1947 and 1973. During his time here he produced a memorable altarpiece in the chapel entitled 'The Crucifixion'. Unfortunately, after Bruce left the altarpiece was repainted and damaged as a result. Over the last few years it has undergone extensive restoration work and the event marked the re-installation of the painting into the chapel.
You can see photos of the altarpiece restoration work here.
