Home Shop Recorded Lectures Recorded Lecture with Professor Frances Spalding CBE (subtitled)
The first online lecture of 2022 coincided with the Centenary touring exhibition visiting All Saints Church in Bristol where John Piper made some extraordinary windows. We were fortunate to have the leading expert on his work, Frances Spalding, to share her knowledge with us.
John Piper did not begin designing stained glass until he was in his early 50s. He then went on to undertake over 60 works in this medium across the next 30 years. Stained glass had made an unforgettable impact on him as a child and in early adulthood he began making copies of stained glass in watercolour. This talk looked at his interest in and involvement with stained across his lifetime, and mentioned also some of the conclusions he drew from it.
