CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Showcases the masterpieces of England's golden age of stained glass, from 1100
Stained glass is one of the glories of medieval art, and much of the finest
glass can be found in England. Intensely moving in its beauty, startling in its
colors, and fascinating in its imagery, stained glass has for centuries
captivated visitors to churches and cathedrals.
This book reveals in detail more than one hundred English windows and panels,
taking advantage of both new technology and Painton Cowen's unfailing eye.
After an introduction explaining the history and techniques of the art form, as
well as the significance and meaning of the windows, the book is organized into
four sections: The North, The Midlands, East Anglia, and The South & Southwest.
The most important monuments, including the cathedrals of Canterbury, Wells,
Gloucester, and York, are covered in depth, while extensive captions explore
the specific background stories of the glass. 200 color illustrations.
