Product Description

A watercolour and pencil drawing of the stained glass window at the Church of St Mary in Esclusham, by the architectural artist Horatio Walter Lonsdale.

Horatio Walter Lonsdale (1844-1919) was an English painter and designer, active in the latter decades of the 19th Century. After finishing at the Royal Academy School of Architecture, Lonsdale made a tour of the continent, studying the Byzantine and Moorish influences of southern Italy. Returning to Britain in the late 1860’s, Lonsdale would be apprenticed to the notable William Burges, architect favoured by the 3rd Marquess of Bute, and under whose guidance he’d remain for most of his career.

The painting shows a ‘3/4 scale’ (1 foot) design of an elaborate stained glass window. The four lower windows depict the biblical figures of Hannah, Ruth, The Virgin Mary and Priscilla, above Christ is depicted in a six-tiered panel. Alpha and omega, the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet, can be seen next to the sun and the moon.

The painting bears numerous inscriptions and has been signed twice by the artist in faded black ink. Also included is “3 John St. Bedford Row. London W.C.”, the address that seems to have been used by Lonsdale during the first decade of the 20th Century.

Though seldom appearing on the open market, other examples for Lonsdale’s designs for stained glass windows can be seen in the Metropolitan Museum, New York.
