The BSMGP spring lecture will be given by Léonie Seliger ACR and is entitled ‘Into the 21st Century: Canterbury Cathedral’s Post-Victorian Stained Glass’. Canterbury is not renowned for its later glass, and a large part of the building’s nineteenth-century stained glass was lost in the Baedeker raids of the Second World War. Nevertheless, in the twentieth century works by Hugh Easton, Ninian Comper, Harry Stammers, Ervin Bossanyi and others have found their places amongst the ancient glass, and works by lesser-known artists are now joining the choir of voices in colour and light.
Léonie Seliger will talk on the history of the twentieth- and twenty-first-century glazing, and look at how attitudes to new windows have changed.
The lecture will take place on Friday 6 March, 6.15pm for 6.45pm.
Cost (postal bookings), lecture only: members £10, non-members £15, student members £8, student non-members £12.50.
Supper: + £12 for categories.
