Trushare Files  No. 109



June 2004




Our illustration shows the West window of St Peter’s, Bushey Heath, the masterpiece of Henry Holiday RA (1839–1927), the great pre-Raphaelite stained glass artist. Holiday was a friend and pupil of Edward Burne-Jones from whom he learned his craft. He was an artist of some distinction, exhibiting regularly at the Royal Academy from about 1858 and is probably best known for his painting Dante and Beatrice which is now in the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool. The window was extensively restored in 2002.

Erratum: Our illustration caption last month described the portico of St Swithun’s, Bridport, as ‘Ionic’. 
The style of course is Tuscan Doric.
