Nanny Bans The Rothenstein Mural



The Rothenstein Mural was painted in 1916 as a memorial to members of the British universities serving in the Great War.

Painted in 1916 by Sir William Rothenstein, former Principal of the Royal College of Art, and measuring approximately 10ft X 40ft, the mural was first displayed at the 11th Exhibition of the Arts and Crafts Exhibition Society at the Royal Academy in the autumn of 1916.

It depicts an academic procession and the conferring of a degree on an ‘unknown soldier' undergraduate by the then Chancellor of Cambridge University.

Presented to the University of Southampton in 1959, by the artist's son, Sir John Rothenstein, the work represents a unique piece of art history. It features many key academics from the era of the Great War, including Vice-Chancellors and Chancellors, and the Poet Laureate Robert Bridges.
In his book "Men and Memories", Sir William Rothenstein told how the idea for the mural came to him. He called it "The New Chivalry":

"I happened to be at Oxford where I witnessed the conferring of degrees . . . The sight of a number of youths, booted and spurred, with their gowns over their khaki, kneeling before the Chancellor to receive their degrees, put me in mind of the age of chivalry, so touching and beautiful were these young figures; and I thought what a fine subject for a memorial painting this would make . . . I therefore painted a group of representative figures, Vice-Chancellors, scholars and men of science surrounding a Chancellor conferring a degree upon a young soldier."

The mural currently hangs in the Senate Room of the University of Southampton.

Unfortunately certain ignorant people don't like it, because it shows white people.

  1. Who does she think she is? A typical stupid trouble maker, but how do such such People get to Universities? If she does that, she must be a criminal, and pay for it.
