Bishop of Winchester Portrait
Hugh Beattie’s portrait of the Bishop of Winchester was unveiled on the evening of Remembrance Sunday by the Lord Lieutenant of Hampshire at Wolvesey, Winchester, the Bishop’s residence.

This new work manages, with economic use of symbolism, to remind the viewer of the Bishop’s appointment with the Church of England by law Established.

In the painting the Rt. Revd. Michael Scott-Joynt is seen debating and gesticulating as if he is explaining the standpoint of the Church of England with one hand, while the other rests on various translations of the Bible. He wears his silver pectoral cross and the badge of the Prelate of the Order of the Garter, and he sits in his cathedral. High above him in a stained-glass window can be seen the crossed keys and sword of his Arms, and his mitre. In the stone screen can also be seen a statue of St George and a royal Crown.

Portraits of many Bishops of Winchester back to the 16th century hang in the Bishops’ House. Hugh Beattie wanted to express in this portrait the strength, continuity and significance of the Church of England to this day.

The painting now hangs in the Dining-room at Wolvesey, and may be seen by appointment; and tours of the portraits in Wolvesey are available on a number of occasions through the year.
