After Christ leaving the Praetorium by Gustave Doré, oil on canvas, about 1873, from the Musée des Beaux-Arts, Nantes. Probably copied from an engraving of the original work. As the work bears similarities to the window in the south wall of the chancel, this may also be the work of Jones and Willis of Birmingham.
