Stained Glass Window Makers of Birmingham School of Art
This the first book devoted to an art form in which teachers and former students of Birmingham Municipal School of Art excelled throughout the twentieth century. All twelve makers included in this volume trained as artists and craftsmen at Birmingham School of Art before taking up stained glass work. All were influenced by the Arts and Crafts ethos of the School.
Henry Payne, after a course of training under Christopher Whall, introduced practical stained glass work to the curriculum in 1901. Colleagues of Payne, Sidney Meteyard, Mary Newill, Bernard Sleigh and Florence Camm were all involved in the design and making of stained glass windows.
Payne’s students Richard Stubington (Payne’s successor as teacher of stained glass work), A J Davies, Benjamin Warren and Joseph Sanders all undertook commissions for churches, schools and domestic locations. Yoxall & Whitford and Donald Brooke continued the tradition later in the twentieth century.
For each maker there is biographical information, their training, brief particulars of other art works, their stained glass work, a gazetteer and colour photographs of windows. Also included are appendices on Bromsgrove Guild, the Chapel at Madresfield Court and a bibliography and index.
