Medieval and Renaissance Stained Glass in the Victoria and Albert Museum
The stained glass collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum is the largest in the world, and includes major pieces from some of the most famous buildings of medieval Europe. Exquisite panels from Canterbury Cathedral and Winchester are matched by examples from the abbey of Saint-Denis and the Sainte-Chapelle in Paris, and from some of the most important cathedrals of medieval France. Germany was renowned throughout the Middle Ages for its stained and painted glass; iridescent early Gothic examples from the Rhine valley contrast with the superb series of 16th-century panels from the abbeys of Mariawald and Steinfeld. Switzerland, the Netherlands, and Italy also produced glass of exceptional quality, as examples from Zurich, Bruges, and Cortona testify.This beautifully illustrated book, with more than 100 panels, represents a treasury of medieval and Renaissance imagery. Each plate is supported by an explanatory commentary and bibliography, making the book an invaluable resource for students of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, and a feast for the eyes for anyone interested in the history of art and design.
