7.15pm Tuesday 9th December: Terry Bloxham: The Development of
Stained Glass as seen through the V & A's collection
(Refreshments at venue from 6.30pm)
Decorated windows, known traditionally as ‘stained glass’, have played an important role in the art of the Christian Church for well over a thousand years. In more recent centuries these windows have also filled the houses and offices of private individuals and corporate institutions. This talk will explore the development of the decorated window from its medieval heyday, through the Reform centuries and into the 19th century Gothic Revival.
The majority of stained glass illustrated in this talk comes from the large and comprehensive collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum.
Terry Bloxham has a post graduate degree in Medieval Studies. She lectures on a wide variety of medieval subjects, using the rich collections in the Victoria & Albert Museum. She is an Assistant Curator in the Ceramics & Glass Section of the V&A and is responsible for their medieval ceramics and stained glass collections.
