    The two wall painting schemes in Eton are rare survivals of late medieval art, dating from two early phases of building work under the patronage of William Waynflete and Roger Lupton. The Miracles of the Virgin (c.1477-1487) decorated the chapel of Our Lady of Eton; the other painting, in the Head Master's Chambers, is a secular scene of school life. Here, the context, iconography and technical aspects of both schemes are discussed in eight essays accompanying the detailed catalogues, with specially commissioned photographs.
