An impressive ceiling.
Beverly Andrighetti: Charles I commissioned Rubens for this job, Ray, to honour his father, James I.

I regret I have never seen the inside of this building before Bev. Just imagine the atmosphere in here on that fateful day in 1649..
Beverly Andrighetti: Can you imagine being there to witness Charles's walk across St. James's Park to the site of his execution on that cold winter's day? If you get the chance, Chris, I would highly recommend a visit.
An amazing building and a very significant date in our history
Beverly Andrighetti: Yes, on both counts, Bill.
What a beautiful ceiling.
Beverly Andrighetti: A Rubens masterpiece, Brian.

the ceiling really commands one's attention, Beverly.
Beverly Andrighetti: As I'm sure it was intended to, Ayush.
Beautiful images - and presentation!
Beverly Andrighetti: Thank you so much, Elizabeth. The Banqueting House has an incredible history behind it.
