This book is a unique record of one of the great monuments of Romanesque painting, reconstructing the lost monumental cycle of paintings at the Chapter House of the Sigena convent in Spain, which is identified as the work of English artists working in Spain - artists associated with the later masters who worked on the famous Winchester Bible.

This book is a unique record of one of the great monuments, now lost, of Romanesque painting. It reconstructs the monumental cycle of paintings at the Chapter House of the convent at Sigena in Spain on the basis of photographs taken just before the building's destruction by fire during the Spanish Civil War in 1936. Besides the tremendous visual impact and aesthetic appeal of these examples of Romanesque art at its highest level, the Sigena wall-paintings are also significant in that they have been recognised to be the work of English artists working in Spain - artists identified with the later masters who worked on the famous Winchester Bible. They are also stylistically related to some of the twelfth-century mosaics of Sicily.
