Painted designs on arches
John Ninian Comper
Chapel of the Holy Sepulcher
G. E. Street's St. Mary Magdalene in Paddington
The chapel was intended as a memorial to Dr. Richard Temple West, the church's first vicar. According to Father Stephenson's history of the church and its decorations, "Everthing in the Chapel was designed by Comper," who also provided explanations of some of the complex iconography he used.
