Description

In this beautifully illustrated chronological account, author and expert glass craftsman Porcelli tracks the art of stained glass from ancient Egypt and its roots in Christianity to its avant garde appeal in the 20th century. He shows how its purpose shifted from telling stories earlier in history to a more self-expressive realm by the time Henri Matisse experimented with colored glass. He also documents the destruction of Coventry Cathedral (one of the major houses of stained glass pieces) during World War II, and touches upon both old and new methods and techniques.
