Dr Jasmine Allen
who will speak on
From Medieval to Modern: The Radiant Art of Stained Glass
This lecture will shed light on the unique art of stained glass, its history and stylistic development from the medieval period to the present day. Using illustrated examples from the collection of The Stained Glass Museum (opens in a new window), the UK’s only museum dedicated to stained glass located in Ely Cathedral, we will uncover a number of treasures.
Dr Allen is Curator of The Stained Glass Museum, where she has worked for more than 4 years. Prior to that she completed a doctorate on the exhibition of nineteenth-century stained glass at the international exhibitions. This research will be published in a forthcoming monograph in January 2018.
The lecture is open to BHRS members and non-members alike, free of charge.
