We have a packed issue this month. There is a detailed report on the restoration of the Jesse Window at Wells Cathedral, recently completed, together with news of stained glass on paper and from the Stained Glass Centre in York. We are also sad to announce the death of Geoffrey Clarke, whose life will be the subject of an appreciation in a future issue.
Our Feature – the second in our series of poster presentations from this year’s international colloquium of the CVMA in York – focuses on the revival of secular stained glass in France in the second half of the 19th century. We also have a preview of a book to be published next month marking the 500th anniversary of the founding of King’s College Chapel, Cambridge, which was the subject of the first British CVMA volume.
We are always pleased to hear from our readers. Do get in touch via the Contact page of the website.
