The Homage-Giving: Westminster Abbey, 9th August, 1902
by John Henry Frederick Bacon
oil on canvas, 1903
This picture commemorates the part of the coronation ceremony during which the king, already crowned, receives the homage of the nobility and clergy. The focus to the portrait is one of the more touching moments in the proceedings. Kneeling before the king, the elderly Archbishop of Canterbury, Frederick Temple, had found difficulty in rising again. As The Timesreported, ‘the King himself takes him by the right hand to help to raise him. Slowly and painfully, as it seems, the Archbishop regains his feet, and then he leans forward and kisses the King on the cheek; but, as he turns to leave, the King takes him again by the hand and clasps it with a gesture of regard too spontaneous and cordial to escape the most casual observation’. Among the many identifiable figures, the Prince of Wales is shown in the foreground and Queen Alexandra is seated to the right.
