Description
This volume showcases the Victoria and Albert Museum’s outstanding holdings of stained and painted glass -- a peerless collection ranging in date from c1140 to 1540. The works include examples from England, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, the Netherlands and Italy. More than 100 colour plates and details show large panels from churches and cathedrals such as La Sainte-Chapelle, Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Cologne, Bruges, Canterbury and Winchester to small but no less beautiful fragments. Commentaries reconstruct their original context and explain their imagery; the text discusses techniques, themes and centres of production.
