Leaded Glass Windows In Art


PAINTINGS WHICH LOOK A LITTLE LIKE LEADED GLASS

I have wondered if stained leaded glass artwork was inspired by the wings of butterflies. The same painting techniques artists use to illustrate butterflies can be applied equally to illustrations of stained glass.

There is something otherworldly about all of Sime’s art. Even a simple landscape is segmented by mosaic-like fissures, with odd creatures sometimes dancing like ghosts over the trees.

This poster was designed by Charles Paine, who funnily enough, was trained in the art of stained glass. This comes through in his design.
