Cry God for England, Harry and Saint George !

St. George was something of an obsession for Henry VIII; his image and the cross of St. George reached new heights in his early reign, adorning almost every piece of armour he commissioned. During 1513 this coincided neatly with his will to replicate Henry V thus the veneration of Edward the Confessor saw a new following as this and other banners carried at Agincourt were removed from Westminster and taken to France once more.

My blogs have been a bit quiet of late but I am most certainly painting; the desk has a definite Landsknecht theme - yo can never have too many !



  1. Stunning work as always, Stuart. You heraldry and banner work most impressive.

  2. I am chomping at the bit waiting for your next round of figures.

  3. Happy St George's Day Stuart!

    Painting that would have made Henry proud :>)


  4. Good to heare from you Stuart !
