Painted Ladies, Bearded Ladies

I wish that I could remember the Oxbridge college where, in a stained glass window of the Day of Pentecost, a beard had been painted onto the veiled head of Our Lady at the time of the Reformation, as can be seen to this day.

Presumably, it is now the faces of the Apostles that are to be replaced with those of women.
