COLOUR AND WONDER - Stained Glass from Medieval to Modern Roger Rosewell Tuesday 15 October 2019

The first lecture – Medieval will explore stained glass from 700AD to the religious reformations of the mid-sixteenth century. It explains how and why stained glass windows were made and by whom.

The second lecture – Medieval to Modern begins with the reign of Queen Elizabeth l and finishes with the final years of Queen Victoria. It ranges from the deliberate destruction in the Civil War to factory-like production in the late 19th century. It will cover the use of enamel paints and the importation of foreign glass into English churches. 

The third lecture – Modern and beyond traces the rise of arts and craft studios and the introduction of modernist ideas into stained glass and will introduce the work of artists such as Christopher Whall, Mary Lowndes, John Piper and Mark Chagall..

In each lecture Roger Rosewell will show examples of local churches.
