Description

THE Archbishop of York has taken pride of place among his predecessors, with the unveiling of his official portrait. Guests gathered at Bishopthorpe Palace yesterday for the first showing of the oil on canvas painting by Jane Allison, who had previously painted Dr John Sentamu when he was Bishop of Birmingham. The painting took eight sittings over the course of a year, and shows the Archbishop in a ceremonial cloak which dates back to the time of Archbishop William Maclagan in the early 1900s.
