The first sequence of sculpture around the choir screen, starting at the western end of the south ambulatory, is the work of Jehan Soulas from 1519-1521. Sculpted from the hard limestone from the Tonnerre quarry, they consist of scenes from the Gospel of James, depicting the annunciation of the Virgin Mary to Joachim and St Anne, the birth of Mary, and the presentation of Mary in the temple.
Above the choir screen at Chartres Cathedral are some 40 sculpted reliefs of biblical scenes, and other scenes from the life of the Virgin Mary. The scenes were sculpted by some of the best artists in France and were commissioned at different times over a 200 year period from 1510 to 1720.
Monuments or memorials to children in English churches were extremely rare until the late 18th and early 19th century. In the 16th century one can find the occassional child tomb amongst the aristocracy, such as that of the The Noble Impe at St Mary's Warwick, but otherwise children do not appear to have warranted memorials in their own right.
The church at Saint Romain sur Cher was rebult in the C16 and restored in the C19. The north and south walls of the apse are painted with scenes of the Decapitation of John the Baptist and the Baptism of Christ on the north wall, and on the south wall is the Resurrection. Both of these paintings were restored in 1859.
