English and French Medieval Stained Glass the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Corpus Vitrearum)
by Jane Hayward, Mary B. Shepard (Editor), Cynthia Clark (Editor)


This comprehensive two-volume catalogue covers the outstanding collection of English and French medieval stained glass in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Written by curator Jane Hayward, the catalogue is posthumously published as Part I in the Corpus Vitrearum series and represents the culmination of Hayward's pioneering work in the field. 123 panels are examined in depth, ranging from 12th-century border ornaments from the Abbey Church of Saint-Denis to early 16th-century English Passion glass.

The catalogue is illustrated with over 500 black and white reproductions and 40 colour plates. It includes discussions on provenance, collection history, dating, style, and iconography, as well as detailed descriptions, restoration charts, and considerations of the current condition of each panel. Mary B. Shepard, Hayward's colleague at The Cloisters, provides an indepth history of collecting medieval stained glass at The Metropolitan Museum of Art -- a fascinating look at the formative influences behind the growth of one of the most important collections in the world.

Medieval and Renaissance Stained Glass in the Victoria and Albert Museum
by Paul Williamson


This long-overdue volume showcases the Victoria and Albert Museum's outstanding holdings of stained and painted glass-a peerless collection ranging in date from c. 1140 to 1540. The works include important examples from England, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Italy.

More than 100 color plates and selected color details show the full range of this magnificent collection, from large panels from key churches and cathedrals such as La Sainte-Chapelle, St. Germain des Prés, Cologne, Bruges, Canterbury, and Winchester to small but no less beautiful fragments. Commentaries on each of the pieces reconstruct their original context and explain their imagery; the text discusses techniques, themes, and major centers of production. Illuminating a golden age of stained glass production, this beautiful book provides an indispensable introduction to the subject.

Paul Williamson is keeper of sculpture, metalwork, ceramics, and glass at the V&A.
