A (very) Short History of English Stained Glass
English stained glass is typically associated with the use of clear and white glass. In the 19th century a level of refinement emerged. Figures and scenes displayed a quality of stoicism and elegance due partially to their extremely fine detail work. Additional characteristic include the use of yellow stains, dark colored clothing, and patterned background draperies. Prominent artists of this refined style include Charles Eamer Kempe and Sir J. Ninian Comper.
