Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Christopher Whitworth Whall (1849-1924) was an English stained glass artist who worked from 1897 into the 20th century. He was an important member of the Arts and Crafts Movement, who became a leading designer of stained glass. His most important work is the glass for the Lady Chapel in Gloucester Cathedral and for the south transept in Canterbury Cathedral. Eight characteristic windows, conveniently accessible to the public in London, can be found at Holy Trinity Sloane Street. Whall was also influential as a teacher, taking stained glass classes at the Central School of Art, and later at the Royal College of Art in London, where students were encouraged to relate design to architecture. Walter Crane, writing in his memoirs, describes a masque for which Whall wrote a Song of Triumph and designed demon costumes.show more
