The appearance of a new Corpus Vitrearum volume is always a cause for celebration, as these works always involve years of research and dedication. The British CVMA is looking forward to the imminent publication of Tim Ayers’s The Medieval Stained Glass of Merton College, Oxford.
A new volume has just been published by the American Corpus Vitrearum: Stained Glass before 1700 in the Philadelphia Museum of Art, by Dr Renée Burnham. This work catalogues more than 140 panels ranging in dated from the thirteenth to the seventeenth centuries, including three medallions from the Sainte-Chapelle in Paris and the finest collection of English armorial glass in the USA.
A full review of this important book will appear in a future issue.
