Home Shop Recorded Lectures Recorded Lecture with Bronwyn Hughes 2021 (subtitled)
Our International theme continues with a lecture by Dr Bronwyn Hughes on the stained glass of Australia.
Through a selection of stained glass windows installed in Australian architecture, this webinar explored British connections and influences from the 1850s onwards, as both countries were changed by depression, war and economic circumstance. Stained glass, seen by many as simply decorative, was an outcome of society’s fluctuations and can be viewed as documents of art, architectural, and religious history.
During the webinar we learned more about how the discovery of gold brought artists and artisans to enhance the building boom it spawned.
